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.

bellingham 

i spend four full days in Bellingham with them
catching them here and there, working around their
work schedules. Basil and i stay up late and read in
the coolness of their sunporch and sleep in late.
i drink afternoon cocktails with the newlyweds and eat
early evening snacks while petting Meyer. i watch her make lotion
and lip balm and make them dinner one night. we all come together
for burgers and corn and drinking games and i wake on the morning
of the fifth day missing him, ready to come home. 

i unpack and find him working on his compost bins
i pick the peas, a few strawberries and water, feeling
gratitude, love and so much joy. . .
