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.

wednesday || week 24

day 167
i am not sure if she fell out of her nest or just walked away,
but somehow she ended up in the middle of the yard.
i watched all day as her mamma came and fed her, 
worms and berries and things baby birds eat. 
in the early evening, mamma coax her to the safety
of one of my flower beds, where i hope she figures out
how to use those wings. 
sometimes it takes lots of tires, 
just like the lighroom update i did last night! 
which misbehaved, over and over, 
until i finally just went to bed.
the overnight rest did us both some good!
