I believe that everything starts by paying attention. Life is imperfect and any magical light we can bring into our day is worthy of our gratitude. Laughter and love, joy and celebrations slip into our lives with ease but learning to cope with the deep pain life brings to us is also necessary. I do this best with my camera, chasing down light, zooming in and out and pairing it all with truth. 

I live in Western Washington with my husband of 40+ years, in the home where we raised our three sons. We share that home now with our sweet beagle named Basil. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.

days like today remind me that 
i am not as young as i use to be
a wonderful morning with a long time friend
taking photos and catching up
and now a sleep over with Cannon
and one of his friends
there is still pizza to be had
and rice krispy treats to make
oh, and  movie
somehow i am pretty sure i won't make it 
all the way through
but i am going to try
because i can't stand to miss a moment
