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.

waking up to her in the house, plant digging and sharing, a morning Skype call from Cannon, promises to get together soon as she drove off, a long walk along the river with the dog, my bravery when i saw the snake and did not run, but actually tried to find the beauty of him as he slithering away, the sound of the river flowing beside us, an afternoon visit from Justin, an easy dinner, some time with my book and the first things on the list for the lake next week . . . 

we agree and are so alike in so many ways, excepts for the cameras we own
