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.

“Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts.”   ― James Beard

somehow even the pouring down rain cannot foul my mood!
it makes me wonder just what it is? i am accepting it for the gift
that it is and taking in every moment. today was full of goodness. 

the smell of homemade bread, a great class at the gym, squirrel fights, a really great dinner with pickled cabbage and leftover chicken, an evening walk with him and the dog, wood ducks at the pond, lilacs almost blooming and hibiscus mint tea.
