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.

wednesday || week 51

day 356 || winter solstice
i made a short list today :: what feels good and what does not
it surprises me that the things that make me feel full of life are often things
i fight. . .  exercise, eating well, speaking my truth
what is the lure behind laziness and indifference? 
why is it so hard to shake? 

the weather was beautiful, cold and crisp. 
the dog and i went out
in search of wildlife and light. 

"There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you. In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself."
