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 27

I took a ten day class and left town in the middle of it and have not picked it back up. I do this a lot; sign up for a class and then let it die a natural death. But this one is different I want to finish and want to think about the prompts. The teacher in me has a hard time with being late, not doing the assignment on time.... 

Five things I feel right now:
sleepy ~  I did not get a good night's sleep last night, this happens more than I like to admit 
frustrated ~ our weather is unusually warm, I mean hot and I am so tired of watering 
grateful ~ that we are on a well and I can water with no guilt or restrictions
a bit angry ~ fireworks are illegal and yet they go off several times a day (the price we pay for living out of the city limits) and they freak Basil out so we have to drug him and I feel mad every time I look at his droopy eyes 
a bit surprised ~ because I can't always pinpoint just what I am feeling 

iced coffee, air-conditioning, him cleaning up his paper mess, the kind clerk at the store today, dinner on the deck and an invite to lunch on the island.
