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 worked a bit in my office today
exchanging out photos in some of the frames
and hanging some new ones
the dog and i headed out in the rain
for a short walk around the pond
and were gifted with both families 
of waterfowl. . . 
there are four baby geese left 
and just as many ducks
i stood in the light rain and watched them
the dog, he paid no attention
