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.

monday::week 34


gratitude for the cool, clear air this morning and a sky so blue, for a walk right after lunch and letting him off leash around the pond, for leaves floating down in the woods and the promise of fall (and maybe some rain), for old friendships and how her accent still makes me laugh, for the text message that the baby is on its way and a long, long talk with Brandon in the middle of the day, and finally for the call in the late afternoon telling me it is a girl, and everything went just perfect. . .
