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 6

today i noticed: 
how wonderful the earth smells
big fat worms
birds singing and splashing in the birdbath
Basil's fur, warmed by the sun
how good fresh, cold water taste
how gardening is good for my soul
but makes my body ache (in a good way) 
new growth popping up all over the yard
plants that need dividing
and how, this 61st coming of spring
is still such a miracle. . .
