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.

friday || sunshine

day 41
the rain wakes me up in the middle of the night, so i am surprised
when the sun greets us upon waking. i make coffee and feed the dog
and bundle up to take him for a walk, before breakfast, afraid if i don't
the sun will be gone. we take our normal route, but stop often to
take in the sunshine as it bounces off the rain drops of the cedar

later there is yoga, with Sarah, the awesome new teacher. 
i learn a little bit about Reiki and what essential oils might help
me sleep and boost my mood. she teaches us about pressure points
and guides us through a facial message. it is incredible to learn, 
first hand, about some of the practices i have been reading about and
dabbling in the past few years.
