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 253 || gratitudes
blue sky, but a chill in the air, a morning walk with the dog, morning dew, honest conversations, my car, bees, my new hip, which is 2 years old now, help in the self check-out line, socks that have a mate, intuition, my camera, friendship, being heard, standing up for my truths, forgiveness, dinner on the deck with him and my growing family. . . 

Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.”
