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 26

day 182
the dog and i walk around the pond in the early evening. 
he sniffs and i notice this tiny mushroom. 
i notice how it is making its way up through a small, round hole
in the board, which makes up the make-shift bridge across
the tiny stream in the winter time.
the hole is no bigger than a penny and yet the mushroom
has found a way to flourish. 
the dog seems uninterested. but me,
i think it is a lesson learned. . .
