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 21`

day 144
i noticed they had opened early this morning
so glad the rain has held off, so far
often their fragile beauty
is ruined by the spring rainfall
melting them on their stems
i make sure to "notice" them every single day
they are blooming. . .  
their seed pods lasting way until fall
a reminder of their short lived beauty
in the garden. . .
