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.

day 103
the conversations i had inside my head went something like this. . . 
just because you still have makeup, from when you worked
five years ago, does not mean it is any good. 
of course everything you have is old and dried up! 
you spend most of your time alone, 
or outside in the yard, and he loves you no matter what,
and the dog does not care. . . 
you think you might need some new "product"? 
you think that will do the trick? 
really, you are going in there? 
this stuff is pretty awesome, you look like you got a good night's sleep
you can do simple, right? oh, and it feels good too. 
it does have spf 30 built right in and that is worth it, right? 

these two sold me makeup today
