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.

the next couple of weeks will be busy
and full of goodness, i told him today
i think he is as excited as i am 
he cut back the apple tree some more
to let more sun into the garden
i planted winter squash, three different kinds
and scratched in some organic fertilizer 
around the plants
