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 || week 34

day 235
there are days when i just need to let go of focused intentions.
i need to let the day flow and forget about the lists i carry
inside my head. if i listen, my body will tell me just what it needs. 
and so, i no longer fight it. sometimes it is a physical thing, but
more often, it is my head that needs a rest. 
i have learned that these pauses do not mean i am a mess, or lost,
or depressed, or sick. . .   
in fact, i think it shows me just how well i know myself,
and that makes me pretty wise. 

I'm only lost if I'm going someplace in particular. ~ Megan Scribner
