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.

thursday || week 21

day 147 || grateful for
the smell of coffee beans as they whirl in the grinder, small memories about my mom and the way they make their way into my soul at just the right time,  the warmth the dog puts off as he snuggles next to me as i read, his excitement (and thoughtfulness) about bringing me home the very first cherries of the season, how sweet they are and their perfect texture, podcasts, beautiful birds at the feeders and laughter. . .
