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 27

day 183
the quiet of the morning, water, to water the flowers, the first grilled corn of the season, watching the dog clean up the cobs, opening up that squeaking gate and letting things out, seeing with gratitude what is right in front of me, sharing and beautiful evening light. . . 

oh, and homemade raspberry-rippled ice cream, made with raspberries from the garden!
