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.

i dug out the old photo and showed her, 
this is how i want it cut, 
and i used my don't mess with me teacher voice!
she smiled and said, 
i prepared myself to give in today
i gave it a good try, i told her. . . 
just for you, because i love you! 
but it is my hair you know! 
we laughed, caught up and i left
