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.

wednesday || week 8

day 53
maple syrup in my morning latte, new bird songs, flats of primroses, sitting in the sun at the coffee shop with her and catching up, bathrooms wallpapered with wine labels, opening the back hatch of my car with my keys so it is all ready to accept the bags of groceries in my arms, roasted peppers, an amazing surprise from someone on my IG feed, arugula in my salad, anticipating tonight's yoga class and trusting my gut. . .
