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 36

sunday gratitudes. . . 
starting the morning off with a long phone conversation with her, late morning bird calls, sunlight streaming in through the dirty windows, the smell of garlic and onions sautéing for soup, the first dog hairs in my brand new car and how i don't even care, riding as far as the park with him and getting out with the dog to walk home in the early evening, goodbye waves, spotting the bunny in the yard and how Basil pays no attention to him, but will smell him later on and let all the neighbors know about it, before we head to bed
