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.

wednesday || week 15

day 104
slipping back in bed for a half hour, our morning text messages, smoothies with fresh fruit, spring exploding along the river, the fact that my phone tracks my steps (almost three miles today on our walk), the start of a new book, spotting the first trillium of the season, friendly strangers, dog butt sniffing, patches of blue sky, people who really listen, eye contact, a piece of dark chocolate, and this sweet dog face. . .

things that make me happy. . .
