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.

monday || week 8

the dog was still in bed when i got home
from the pool, he might have convinced me
to crawl back in bed, just until 7:00
it is good to have a partner in crime
there were phone conversations with friends and family
and an afternoon trip to a new dog park
where i watched as the sky turned blue and puffy
clouds emerged . . .  

monday gratitudes :: 
my library card
the sound of the river rushing by
watching Basil's ears fly as he runs

tuesday || week 8
