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.

sunday || building a life

day 218 || August 6th 

I head up to pug-sit, it is their 8th wedding anniversary and they are going away for a couple of nights. We eat beans from the garden, along with onions and some corn on the cob. He loves my pickled beets and I love his zucchini bread. Later we sit on the sunporch and talk, while she spins. The cool air comes in through the screens and it feels good after the blistering hot day. 

What a lovely life they have built together.
