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.

sunday || week 15

day 101
sometimes the day i envision as i lay in bed in the morning,
just does not happen. . . 
the movie i planned to watch in the afternoon, or maybe the nap i thought about
is replaced with going on errands with him, 
walking the dog and cleaning out the fridge
but here i sit tonight, full of goodness, thinking about lasting conversations
growth and days spent unplugged and busy
the table is adored with  a beautiful bouquet of lilacs, 
snipped from the vacant house down by the pond
on our walk, they fill the house with their aroma
and bring up memories of my mom
and i can't help but think, what a perfect day. . .
