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.

wednesday::week 30


i had him cook and clean it for us
because we had nothing to do that with back at the room
neither one of them had ever cracked crab to eat
in my opinion, that meant they had never really had crab
the afternoon reminded me of my childhood 
pulling crab rings, my father cooking them in salt water
all of us eating until we were so full 
in years past, when i would swing by mom and dad's on my way to meet them
my dad would always ask
"are you going to do some crabbing?" 
next year i am, dad, next year i am. . .
