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.

tuesday || week 25

day 173
sometimes (not often) i yell and get upset, it is not pretty, or kind, and i don't
always fight fair. but it helps to get the pain out, even it the conversations
are hard, and a bit messy. 
it is a bit like shedding a deep dark secret. 
and somehow things look better on the other side. . .  

preserved strawberries with chilies for out trip this weekend,
just the right amount of heat.
