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.

day 192 

triggers feel like caustic splinters that lodge deep within my existence
they take up residence where they languish and fester and waste my time
i decide to approach the day a bit different and this is what i notice

the two butterflies who dance through the flowers as i drink my morning coffee
the way the dog tilts his head to the left when he is asking something of me
the smell tomatoes plants emit when you brush against them in the garden
how sweet the first potatoes of the season taste, dug, rubbed clean and gently cooked
how the hummingbirds have taken to the nasturtiums on the deck
the smell of fresh picked savory, as i add it to the potatoes
