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.

“It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold
over the grassy hillside.” 
― Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy and Tib

I caught him searching for a bit a shade in the cool grass this afternoon. He warms my heart and fills my days with meaning and joy. In a couple of weeks he will turn ten and I can tell he is slowing down a bit. He has that look down, the one where I can't resist his wishes. He is the first dog we have had that is mine, all the others preferring someone else in the family. He and I are pals and I feel blessed to have him by my side.
