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.

tuesday::week 32

for the massiveness of this amazing lake, for the familiarity of the cabin, which has not changed in the twenty years we have been coming, for swimming before breakfast and friends who come to share a few days with us, for gin and tonics in the afternoon, good conversation and alone time to read, for the guys doing the dishes and heading to bed 60 knowing i will wake up tomorrow 61, blessed and loved. . .
