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.

tuesday || week 22

day 152
i spent part of the morning chasing a butterfly
with my new lens. there is always a learning curve,
i remind myself and understand fully that the process
is really where the magic happens . . . 
once i was done, she came back to tease me several times
throughout the day, which made me smile because it gave me hope,
that the two of us might do it again, soon.
