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 39

day 269
we found them at the Bayou watching the game
both of them still smiling from all the love
encircling them. 
the dog and i both slept most of the way home, exhausted in a good way. 
we unpacked the car and then i sent gary out the door,
to the east side of the mountains, for the very last time
he will be home on wednesday, with the trailer
and our new journey will start. 
life is kicking my butt with goodness right now, 
and i plan on enjoying every moment.
