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.

wednesday || week 49

day 342
waiting at the gate. . . 

i am thinking some about next year's 365,
as the new year gets closer and closer, 
should i keep on doing the very same thing? 
i took a look back on the year and before long
i was lost in the day to day entries. . .  
that seems like a good enough reason to me. 

gratitudes :: 
shooing trouble out the back door, tenderness, settling into myself, a new camera card, blue sky and lots of sunshine, that crisp cold air that makes everything seem clean and pure, so many birds at the feeders, roasted broccoli, the gym and celebrating her birthday, kindness and heat.
