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.

thursday || week 7

first we played with the micro machines
then we ate lunch and talked about firetrucks
after lunch he fed Basil treats and the two of them practiced shaking hands
later i took his picture with Basil using my mini instax and we watched it develop
(and then i took some with my big girl camera) 
the sun came out so we took a walk down to the pond
where he tossed sticks into the water for Basil to fetch
while we watched the ducks and geese
and talked about how they are alike and how they are different
on the way home he held my hand and told me he once kissed a girl at preschool
(and made me promise not to tell his dad) 
it was just what i needed . . .
