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 18

day 123
there are days that gratitude is so important, 
today is one of those days. . . 
birds in the birdbath, people who care and listen, a call from Brandon, help making boundaries, faith in myself, audio books that make me want to sit in the car and keep listening, then realizing i can unplug my phone and listen to it in the house, the first rose of the season, seashell collections, chatting with the neighbors and lavender dryer sheets. . .
