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.

friday || week 12

day 78 || a tiny surprise
i always love it when i upload a photo
and there is a tiny surprise, something i was not
focusing on when i hit the shutter, something i did not even notice
when this happens i am mesmerized and joyful
and grateful for the discovery
it makes me wonder how much of life
i miss, how much i don't notice
life does not come with a tool to bring things in closer
a tool to magnify the things we don't notice
that is up to us, i can't help but thank this tiny creature
for the reminder today
