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.

“You can't protect other people, however hard you try.” 
― Gail Honeyman, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

i row almost 9,000 meters today, i sweat and laugh
and fill gratitude for the others around me in their "boats". 
the weather is just about perfect and the dog and i water
and water. i pick more peas and leave a pile of strawberries for
him to find in the grass, which he does and i watch him eat them
from the deck, feeling like we shared a secret. i gently poke around
the potatoes, feeling for the tiny new ones, not quite yet, i think. 
we talk about plans for a trip in the fall over lunch and i start a new book.
