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.

saturday || week 19

day 128
even after 14 years, it seems strange to not have a mother. . .
i thought about her so much today. i can remember her voice, 
and the way she answered the phone.
i remember the time she broke her arm and made me
wash her feet before i took her to the ER. . . 
i remember how she smelled and how she loved my kids and my father.
i even thought of her as we corralled the raspberries. it seemed that everything
i did today reminded me of her, 
i miss you mom. . . 

sunday || mother's day
