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 221 

The dogs and I have settled into our little routine. They eat, we go out, I tend to the chickens, while they do their business and we head inside so I can make a latte. I sit with it, on the deck and write. I make breakfast, Great Harvest bread and a bit of avocado and a fresh peach. I grab my camera and Gus and head out to walk the trails surrounding their acreage. I look for light and he looks for anything that moves! 

I pack slowly, make my bed and feed the turtles a bit of kale, I pack the car. Gus heads into his crate without any complaint, maybe hoping it will be his mom or dad who lets him out a little later. 

At home, Basil is beside himself and I am showered in so many kisses I feel the need to wash my face afterwards. I walk the garden, see there are tons of beans to be picked, a couple of huge zucchinis and a few, almost ripe, tomatoes. He is glad to see me too, tired of watering I think. 

It is good to be home.
