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.

saturday || week 9

i spent a good part of the day annoyed
baffled and powerless, feeling a bit hopeless
and trapped, i really yearn for this darkness to ease up some
i fear i will write this here and someone will
needlessly worry and so, yet again i wonder why
i feel such a pull to keep my thoughts here
but there is an obligation to be true to ones self
and let's face it, there are days that just suck

blooms on the flowering quince
moments of blue sky and sun
love. . .
