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.

saturday || week 30

day 205
the dog sits in my lap while i read most of the day, only to abandon me at the end, the sad part when the dog actually dies. i scoop him up when i am done and kiss him, take him for a long walk and allow him to sniff and wade in the pond all he wants. i think about how much joy he brings to all of us and think about the story and how hard it is to come to terms with the death of a loved one. . .
