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 || silence

day 37
i wake early and i know by the blinking red numbers on the clock
that we lost power, for a bit, sometime during the night.
i slip out of bed and peek out the window and find the world is a blanket of snow. 
i slip my sweater on over my pj's and head to the kitchen, where
i open the back door and i am greeted with silence. 
that deep silence that only snow can bring. 
i stand, in my bare feet on, the deck and listen as
i scan the trees with their heavy branches and watch
the snow, which is still falling, float gently to the ground. 

i take the dog out three times to play. . .
