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.

friday || week 22

day 148
kind and helpful people, who were super patient with us today as we ordered our new doors, dog lovers who bring their dogs to the home store and notice how you look at her and so they stop to let you pet her (her name was Lily), tacos from the taco truck for lunch, weed-eating, watching the goslings eating bugs from the pond and learning how to dive, him bringing home my favorite almond milk without being asked, the peonies opening, the way fresh cherries pop in my mouth, anticipation for the kids coming tomorrow and extra strength Tylenol . . .
