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.

friday || week 42

day 288
the rain pours so hard i get out the dog's raincoat
he is not 100% today, and we discuss taking him to the vet
the kids come over for dinner and Justin requests beef stroganoff
there is ice cream and caramel sauce from the co-op for dessert
i make sure my kindle is charged, just in case we lose power
and fill the candle holders with votives as he rounds up the flashlights
