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 16

day 109
i spent the day waiting in the jury duty pool
200+ people, who walked in the door at 8:00am strangers
by lunch time gentle conversations were taking place
after lunch, i sat a watched as a young woman
taught an older woman how to send a text message
they exchanged numbers and then test text messages
amazing, the older woman said! 
i thought that was pretty awesome. . . 
by 2:30, when we were excused, i wondered how many
new friendships were started during the hours we sat and waited, 
even if it was just for the day. . .
