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 14

day 97
i edged the side flower bed
moved the outdoor furniture around  
blew off the patio and the driveway
hooked up the new hose  
cleaned the birdbaths
filled the feeders
laid on my back in the grass,
(with the dog by my side)
and watched the blue sky
finally took a shower
read my book outside
with and iced coffee
and than a huge glass of water
listened with compassion
shared a bit of my story
ate an almond butter and jelly sandwich
at 9:30, because i had forgotten to eat dinner
and then. . . 

fell into bed dead tired
full of goodness and a bit sore
