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 34

gratitude for all the amazing young woman who have filled my days lately with love and friendship, how there is a movement inside my head from thinking of them as my friend's daughters (and the little girls and young woman they once were) to mothers and woman i can learn from and who fill me with hope and goodness, for laughing together today with one of them and thinking how lucky her boys and husband are and how lucky i am to be part of their lives from time to time, for this crazy dog who posed for me today, with a little coaxing, because it was national dog day and how he makes me so happy. . .
