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 46

day 321 || gratitude for . . . 
myself, for listening to my gut, for understanding i can be compassionate and speak my truth, for being clear that no one speaks for me and knowing it is okay to say; let me think about that, for feeling strong and yet tender, for not just testing the waters, but jumping in with a full heart because i know myself best, for discarding old habits and not being afraid to let them go, for trusting myself and not scrutinizing my choices, for leaving behind old grudges and replacing them with forgiveness while holding on to grace, for learning to live in the moment with a full and open heart because i know i am worth it.
