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.

friday || week 23

day 155
i sat for a few hours and minded the fire,
reading my book between stoking and dodging the smoke.
i sat for an hour or and thought about hearsay,
and wondered why people play games with those they love. 
i sat for a couple of hours and cleaned up my May photos, 
hitting delete over and over and labeling folders. 

most of them say Basil . . .
