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.

gratitudes:: an office staff who let him come with me even though i was a half hour early, the kind mother in the parking lot who did not block me in, watching him make father's day cards at our dinning room table, teaching him how to use the camera remote, a long walk with his dog and mine, watching him ride his bike, sitting together and eating dinner and him asking me.... "grandma do you ever get lonely here all by yourself when grandpa is gone?"
