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.

i put the water on before i did anything else
moving it from bed to bed and finally 
into the vegetable garden
it feels like august. . . 
later i went for a facial
{ a gift from him } 
which always makes me feel so 
spoiled. . . 
the dog did not get walked because 
the heat snuck up on us
first thing in the morning i promised him 
i like that he does not hold a grudge
