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 32 my birthday

for a text from Jordan at midnight, wanting to be the first to wish me happy birthday, for waking up to calls full of birthday wishes and more text messages, for time on the dock, a short walk with the dog and dinner out, where the meal was such a disaster it was actually pretty funny, for going to bed wondering what 61 will offer up, feeling blessed and loved. . .
