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 || week 52

day 365
we ran some errands today and went out to lunch.
there was grocery shopping to get done too, where i ran into one
of my old students, all grown up and so beautiful! 
the weather was so nice, i got a bit anxious because i
wanted to get home to walk the dog. . .  
it was crisp cold and i could see my breath
but the sky was amazing and even though the sun was low
in the sky, it was such a beautiful color. . .  
the dog agreed to pose, even though i had forgotten treats
