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 52

day 363

i can feel the closing of the year grounding itself, 
deep inside of me, where there is a aura
of rooted goodness and growth.
i am hungry for a fresh dawn,
for a crisp beginning with so many possibilities
and potential for stretching into this life. . . 
i also feel a comfort that i've not felt before,
knowing that there will be heartache and pain
along with love and light in the days ahead.
but mostly there will be tiny moments of goodness
and i will do my best not to miss any of them
