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 || memorial day

day 151
pugs in the house, morning lattes with our books, bbq sausages, scrambled eggs and pancakes for breakfast, rhubarb sauce from the last of the rhubarb, finding the depth finder for him to take home, how happy they are, savoring the last of the long weekend with my book on the deck after everyone had left, dill pickle potato chips, squirrel shenanigans in the flower beds and perfect weather. . .
