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.

saturday::week 27 ~ the 4th

we headed up to bham to celebrate with the kids
B did ribs and a chicken 
and everyone else brought something to contribute
it finally cooled down enough in the early evening
to be outside, but then of course the fireworks started 
we watched them over the lake
and i worried about the dog, checking on him once
the drugs seemed to work, 
but later in the night, when they just would not stop
he was a mess. . .
