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.

sunday || week 24

day 164
we read the paper in bed with our coffee. 
later, we headed to a new farmers market, 
where i could not resist the sweet peas
and a box of berries. 
we had lunch on the grass with all the other folks
and their pups. although Basil was so interested in what
we were eating he did not notice all the other dogs. 
on our way home we took him to the dog park, where he played
hard, waded a bit and then walked toward the gate all on his own. 
pooped pup, we both said at the same time. 

"bow to the ingredients of your life"
