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 || layers

day 33
the outside perimeter of the ponds are a frozen, 
and i notice the different layers leading out to open water. 
the sun is just perfect and i am glad i brought my camera. 
the wind scares the dog at times, and he runs to my side
for reassurance. i bend to pet him and let him know
it is okay. i can only imagine the sounds he captures with
his magnificent ears, for when he turns his head just right, his ears fly. 
i can't help but laugh. 

friday || habits

wednesday || open mind
