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.

my five x 3 for Michelle's class:: gratitudes 
a doctor who listens
blood drawn on the first poke
running into an old friend at the store
iced tea at Starbucks
coming home to a warm welcome

green beans which are finally climbing the pole
no sign of the snake
no water restrictions
an afternoon iced coffee
hummingbird fights on the deck

the pond which is always full of wonder
shadows on the path
fresh cilantro and mangos in my chicken salad
laughing at the dog
and text messages from Hollywood
