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.

monday || week 52

day 361
those of us, who did not have to work, slept in
jordan made waffles for breakfast, and more naps followed
even the dogs were tired. . .  
later there were french dips and a huge salad
they all went home with cookies and fudge and turmeric potatoes
for some reason my camera sat in my office until these four got ready to leave
then he helped me clean up and we talked about how good it was
he agreed with me that the house always feels a bit empty when they leave
but our hearts are full and we are so very blessed, life is good.
