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 249
he worked all day on an outdoor table for the kids.
it was good to hear the saw and hammer and know he was being creative; 
something he has not made time for in ages. 
i headed to the gym and the store and brought him back a diet coke, 
which made his day. . .  

“And where is home? Is it where we begin or where we end up? Is it where we long to be or where life puts us to make good use of our gifts?”
