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.

tuesday || week 51

day 355
i spent a good hour today looking for mom's spritz cookie recipe
without any luck. i finally googled it and found several to choose from.
another hour or so later (because I got sidetracked on pretty sites with pretty photo
of amazing food) i found one that looked like hers.
(to be honest they all were pretty much the same).
at that point however i decided i would wait until tomorrow to bake them
because it was time to think about dinner. . .  i thought about how easier life was
when we just went to the neighbor and asked for her recipe. or had
everything we needed in a green plastic recipe box inside a drawer. 
the choices were clear and there was not the urge to do things up
a bit different or try to outdo the spritz cookie queen.
