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.

friday || ordinary beauty

day 27
i think about what to say about today, a normal, full day
but nothing too spectacular to make note of. i sometimes think
i need to get out more to take more interesting photos. . . 
but then in dawns on me that this is all about the day to day, 
the ordinary beauty and faking it won't cut it.
he posed for me while we were waiting for dinner
to come out of the oven.  he got a few treats and i got a lick. 
i am thankful i can still get up and down from the floor!
