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 9

day 60
an extra day to have lunch with friends
and to walk away with gifts of flowers and food and encouragement
and extra day to stroll along the river
to explore a new path with the dog and notice signs of spring
an extra day to think about poetry and mindfulness
and words and just how amazing and diverse people are
an extra day to be grateful for this life
and to feel the darkness slipping away. . .
