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.

we managed a short walk 
between rain showers
and then i headed to meet a couple 
of friends for lunch
i came home and started to pack
laying everything out on the extra bed
i really can't believe it is real
tonight Donna sent us photos 
of the road signs she is putting up
eeeeeeek, as Beth is always saying
