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 || help in the garden

He helped me so much in the garden today! 

Usually the vegetable garden is my domain but today he tied up the raspberries and dug the trenches for the potatoes. He also weeded and turned the last vegetable bed. The peas are up! Now, if we can just keep Basil from eating the sprouts. I can see the beets breaking ground and a bit of the lettuce too. I feel better today, but still not great. So, I made chicken lemon soup with orzo for dinner. I wonder if eating too many lemons is bad for you?
