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 outside most of the day
weeding beds so i could  plant zucchini 
and cucumbers, somehow the lettuce has
disappeared. . .  slugs no doubt
later i planted the pots on the deck
and came in spent, in a really good way
i watched to bees later on in the evening
trying to catch them as they darted in and out
of the flowers with my camera
