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.

friday::week 28


gratitudes:: waking up to rain and cool air coming in through the windows, a new eye doc, who explained the very slight wrinkle on the outside rim of my retina in a way that did not scare me, his assistant who picked out my new frames in three tries, a trip out to the garden, where dinner was planned around the first significant harvest, the smell of the raspberry peach crisp in the oven and him going to get vanilla ice cream and a movie and offering to take the dog. . .
