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 15

day 102
breakfast date with myself, rooibos tea, the way the dog fluffs the pillows, children wearing bike helmets, free hand lotion samples, smoked chicken, clusters of tiny white daisies in the green grass, partly cloudy, the sound of the river, watching a movie in the middle of the day, catching myself humming and reassurance. . . 

things that make me happy
