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.

"Letting joy temper sorrow is how we endure, and letting sorrow temper joy is how we remain compassionate." Mark Nepo

tomatoes from the garden, the sound of the sprinklers, easy conversations, friends who check up on me, dogs at the dog park and the people who love them, music from the bike festival floating into the park, the colors of Mt Si, treats for the dog, the first signs of fall as we drive up the pass, corn on the cob so sweet it taste like dessert, concert tickets bought and plans made.
