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 8

day 54
i wake to a dusting of snow, melting as it hits the ground.
we both head to the gym where i beat my best split time, but
boy my legs are tired! the chill in the air is enough to keep us both inside
for most of the day, however i wander out, during a sun break, 
with the dog and my camera. the birds are flocking in droves
to the ivy tree to eat the berries and i watch them for a long time. 
Basil checks out the compost pile, making sure his toy
is safely buried and i fill the feeders. later we clean the house, 
he does the downstairs while i do the main floor. there is dinner,
and reading and quiet but soon there will be the Zags on TV. 

the common routine of the day fills me with love and gratitude.
