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 || getting ready

today Dad would have been 95 years old. . . 

i think of him off and on all day.
i pack the trailer for our first official outing of the season; clean sheets, 
fresh towels, food and cloths. the dog hangs with me most of the day,
happy to find one of his toys waiting for him on the bed. 
i think about all the camping i did as a child and get all excited. 
i offer up that we could leave tomorrow, but he is right we really can't. 
come friday morning however, we will be out the door bright and early.
