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.

tuesday || week 8

i skipped the pool today
and worked in the garden instead
Basil and i sat in the sun for a few minutes, resting
(digging is hard on both of us)
and watched hundreds of birds fly in and out
of the ivy on the big tree in the back yard
it made me wonder how many nests
are hidden in that old tree
the wind blew like it was fall
but it felt like spring

tuesday gratitudes ::
the sweet sound of the wind
conversations which build trust
bunkbeds passed down with memories attached
the sound of geese, flying overhead, on their way to the pond
