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.

saturday || week 46

day 317 || gratitude for . . .  
waking to the smell of fall coming in through the open windows of the bedroom, birds at the feeders, a long conversation with him, both of us contributing and coming away feeling better, playing tug with the dog, those tiny boxes of whipped cream at TJ's, how a few warm days can mix up the flowering shrubs in the yard (and hoping we don't get a hard freeze anytime soon), maple syrup, roasted root vegetables, pumpkin pie spice, fresh mint, neighbors who wave and quiet. . .
