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 33

day 225
i woke to a couple of text message and later a few phone calls. it feels
gratifying to be loved, to have friends and family who care.
62 feels a whole lot better than 61. i feel like i was only
practicing for this stage of my life at 61, waiting for that big
ah-ha moments, rather than being curious and open to what may come
my way. . .  
today 62 feels good, it feels comfortable, but not stagnant, 
or complacent. it feels natural and yet exciting, winsome and generous. 
it feels right. 
happy birthday to me
