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.

day 177

i think all day about how i often make things too hard, 
take life too seriously. . .  i can rationalize my thought process
so clearly and understand why i feel the need to do this,
but it does not always make for a blissful life. lately it has
bogged me down and i am fighting judgement and
resentment towards others. i wonder what it might feel like
to just live free of all of that. to live my life without silly restrictions, 
which are put there mostly by myself. something to ponder. 

today we kind of celebrated 41 years of marriage. well, 
he bought me a beautiful card, we went out to dinner and
he came with Basil and me for our walk.
