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 || week 37

day 255
she sent me a photo today of her grandson, who is not quit one, but walking all over the place. it made me think about trust and fearless transitions. how babies pursue so many transitions, without hesitation. they move from one stage to the next without question. they role over, they crawl, they take steps, they let go of mom and dad's hand and they walk. they reach for food, they start to talk, they explore and question but most of all, they do life. they try over and over, because there are lots of failures and even some tears. but they don't stop. every new experience must surly have them spinning inside their heads. and yet. . . we couldn't stop them if we wanted to. the force of life is too strong. 

 it makes me question when we start to lose that force. when do we start to doubt our life transitions? when to we start holding back?
