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.

tuesday || week 46

day 320  || gratitude for . . . 
a meaningful conversation first thing in the morning, shopping for clothes with a good attitude, sales clerks who are helpful and make me laugh and help me get the job done quickly, the smell of nuts roasting in the oven with a hint of orange, winter pears with blue cheese and crackers for dinner, the steady drumming of the rain on our roof throughout the day, being mindful of compassion, both to others and myself, making a list for Thanksgiving and a clean office.
