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.

sunday::week 34

smoke filled the air, getting heavier and heavier as the day went on
the light breeze, the weatherman promised, never panned out
we spent a good deal of the day talking
and ate Costco hotdogs for dinner, before he took off for the east side
and i feel blessed and grateful he listened
and more importantly that he understood
it was hard to watch him pull out of the driveway tonight
he called and said the east side was far worse
smoke so thick he couldn't even see the hills
i fear our beautiful state is burning up
and my heart aches for everyone touched by these wildfires
