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.

wednesday || week 8

today was a repeat of yesterday,
lots of time in the garden, digging and dividing perennials
moving them around some
Basil did his part and helped me dig
and J cut down the sick weeping cherry tree for me
i thought a lot about dad today . . . 

things that make me happy::
big fat worms
the first buds of spring
homemade vanilla simple syrup for my morning latte
