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 41

day 287
the day unfolds slowly because the night was harsh
insomnia, you heartless enemy. 
i come fully awake however and embrace the rainy day,
time with him doing normal things. 
the dog is not himself, and needs help
getting up onto my lap. he sleeps most of the day away
but is eating and perking up his ears when he hears us talk, 
not wanting to miss a anything
so, i am not too worried. . .
