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.

tuesday || week 16

day 110
25 of us sat all morning, waiting for the court to be ready for us
it made me wonder just what that meant, 
i read, listened to a podcast, and talked with my neighbors
they sent us to lunch, where i read some more, this time
in the sun, and bought a new pair of jeans
later, we all settled in with cool water bottles, only to wait some more,
i am glad the case was settled without our assistance
pleased we were all smiling as we handed in our juror badges,  
and gratified we all showed patients with the system
i came home wiped out, read out, tired, and satisfied
the dog was so glad to see me. . .
