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.

thursday || week 24

day 168
i had great ambitions for the day, places to go, 
things to get done, but none of them came to pass. 
instead the dog laid beside me while i finished my book, 
for tonight it expires off my kindle, and i didn't want to be left up
in the air. . . later there was a walk and a bit of deadheading
in the garden and the first of the raspberries were picked. 

have i mentioned lately how great it is to be retired!
