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 43

day 300
the rain falls all day, hard rain, wet rain.
i love the sound of it on our metal roof
and i like to have the kitchen window open to smell it.
the dog balks at going outside to do his business,
but manages with a bit of encouragement.
however, he is right back at the back door the minute he is done.
it is not cold, and i think about taking him for a walk,
but talk myself out of it, so he naps,
while i clean the house from top to bottom.
tomorrow, i promise him. . .
