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.

this is what Brussels sprouts look like
as they are just beginning to develop
i wonder if we will be eating them at Thanksgiving?

and this is what afternoon light looks like behind a dahlia 

and this is a wheelbarrow full of winter squash looks like
ready to harden off and store for winter

What a great year in the garden!
