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.

“So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.” ― Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Basil is so tired he sleeps most of the day and,
i kind of wish i could join him.
while i was gone the dear have gotten to some of my roses
in the front yard, eating the first beautiful flush of color.
i surprise myself by not being as upset as
i imagined i might be, i am okay sharing with them.

i feel a bit like someone has nipped me in the bud too.

re-enty is a bitch. . .
