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 thought to myself as i was driving to their house
that this was the first time one of my kids had invited me 
to dinner just because. . . 
he liked the Foster Grants and the bag 
of multicolored little peppers the Easter Bunny 
left for him at our house
he ate the whole bag before dinner
