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.

monday || 4th of July

day 186
we woke to firecrackers, making the dog so nervous he would not eat
so we packed him up, along with the camera and headed up to North Bend
for a walk along this tiny lake, a place we knew would be quiet
the rain held off and he sniffed and relaxed
we stopped for hamburgers on the way home
and i saved him a few french fries, 
tonight will be hard on him i know. . .  

tuesday || basil's birthday

sunday || week 27
