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 12

day 81
thunder and rain woke me and the dog in the middle of the night
he crawled under the covers, shaking, seeking comfort
i was happy for his warmth
the rain paused for a bit and we headed outside
where he moved one of his toys and i noticed the first
blackberries blooming
i ordered a 10x magnifying loop to look at nature
up close and personal
it should be here tomorrow
oh, and i swung into Starbucks for an ice tea while i was out and about
only to have one of my old students ask me for my order
that was way fun!
