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.

"When we enter life as a question to be lived rather than a problem to be solved, we can find our way in the world. "  ~ Mark Nepo 

what small wonders will i notice today? 

the tiny, delicate flowers on all my herb plants and the way they smell so bold and bright, tiny vases to put a few sprigs in around the house, conversations which lead to apologies and understanding, the first corn of the season grilled, along with zucchini from the garden, a few tiny green beans hanging on the plants, fresh sheets and no restrictions on watering, laughter floating over our back fence as the children behind us cooled off and splashed in their little pool, the way Basil kept checking on his four blankets, which i washed and hung outside on the deck railing to dry, and how happy he was when i brought them inside. . .  finally!
