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.

i met her for coffee and an hour or so of shopping
i bought a new book about tidying up 
he and the dog laid in the sun outside the trailer
later i joined them and started the book
wondering once i tidy all up
will the book spark enough joy to keep it? 
or will it be discarded! lol 
in the evening we walked around the old neighborhood
and missed our little house a bit
