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.

SUNDAY::WEEK25 Summer Solstice

what i love about summer:: waking up to blue sky, new flowers blooming every day, long afternoons spent reading or walking the dog, the frogs around the pond, who jump when we walk by, the smell of fresh cut grass, evenings which linger on and on, trips planned and the anticipation they hold, air conditioning, salad for dinner (mostly from the garden), fresh sheets and staying up late enough to see the stars....
