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 13

day 86
we toyed with the idea of going somewhere
but chose instead to stay home and work in the yard
the potatoes beds are ready and the vegetable garden planned out
i cut back bushes and trees and ferns and rhododendron and laurel
opening up the yard, and letting in light where it has not shined
in years. . . 
a salamander tightened me so,  i was so sure it was a snake
tonight i am tired and dirty and sore and i feel great
we are going out for burgers. . .  
tomorrow is Easter

sunday || easter

friday || week 13
