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 29

day 203
i spend a couple of hours among the vegetable garden beds in the cool of the morning
there is not much planted, or growing, except weeds
this years potato beds are full and a tee-pee of green beans grows all alone in a one bed.
there is one squash plant and some cranberry beans, and a few empty beds. 
i think back to years when this garden would feed the five of us
throughout the summer, and into fall and i wonder if when he retires,
and is home with me full time, if i will plant one again?? 
i like the freedom this year, of not having to worry about it,
not having to water or weed, but it is a trade off for sure. 
i find one of the dogs toys buried among the weeds and ask him
if he is hoping for a bumper crop!
