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.

sunday || week 48

day 332 || gratitude
if you would have asked me a year ago, when that
wise old woman was going to start showing up, 
i would have told you she was lost. . .  
today she is starting to shine a bit, speaking her wisdom
with tenacity and grace. i only have to remind myself to slow down,
take a few deep breaths and give her time to speak her mind. 
if i do this, nine times out of ten she has the ability to calm me down
and see things more clearly. 
i am grateful for her; grateful that she did not
give up on me and was so patient. 
i hope by next year at this time,
we are bosom buddies.
