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.

tuesday || week 37

day 257
she shows up with dinner because her husband is out of town.
i am lonely she says, welcome to my world i tell her. . .  
we make salmon and Israeli couscous, have a couple
glasses of wine and sit on the deck and talk.  
we watch it get dark, and i am a bit sad when she leaves
i do the dishes however and understand my heart
is full and i am feeling pretty blessed, my book calls
and suddenly i am tired. . .
