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.

saturday || week 18

day 121
how forgiving nature is, pedicures with bright polish, iced coffee with almond milk, new authors, the way the dog gets onto a scent and goes crazy, reclaiming spots in the yard and how good it feels to work hard, my new hip (which is 1.5 years old now and serving me well), untamed raspberry canes, leftover Thai food for dinner, being a bit selfish today, because i needed to, and not feeling the least bit guilty about it, new flowers blooming every day in my yard and bees. . .  

things that make me happy
