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.

thursday || week 36

day 252
the morning is full of validating conversations, note taking
and summoning up bravery and courage to ask important
questions, even if the answers are not there yet. 
we walk later, the dog and i, and i seek our patterns
in nature to help me wrap my head around patterns in my life. 
i notice the very first true signs of fall, and pause the dog, 
on the side of the road, for a photo. . .
a neighbor honks at me and smiles, lifting a hand to wave. 
it is so warm i tie my jacket around my waist and i understand
summer is slowing down, but still frisky enough to not completely bail.
and, i understand that each blue sky, every warm breeze coming through
the open door, will now be a gift i won't be able to ignore.
