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.

monday || week 39

day 270
i spend time going through photos,
post processing a few while the memories
are still fresh in my mind. 
i decide to let them sit now for a bit, knowing when i come
back to them in a week or so, i will
notice things with fresh eyes, picking up on details
i can't see right now.  
because today. . . 
i can hardly get beyond their smiles.
