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 24

day 163
resetting, exfoliating, self-reflection
he spent the day finishing the carport door
somehow it made me sad to take out the old door, 
the huge window, where i peeked out to make sure the kids were okay,
out playing in the carport or the driveway,
making room for us now, it is our time
and i need to stand on my tip-toes to see out.
the rain was non-stop, the hard rain, which wilts the roses
but makes everything so green.
the dog and i stole a few moments between showers to
work in the flowerbeds. . .
