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 8

two trips to two different parks
a trip to the vet
more digging in the dirt
a rest, my head on my kneeling pad
and the dog settled in right next to me
him, his chin on my shoulder and me,
looking up at this. . .  

a vet who gets right down on the floor to do the exam
the good news that it is just a fatty lump and nothing to worry about
laughter over the phone, jokes only she and i get
short sleeves and no coat

friday || week 9

wednesday || week 8
