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.

sunday || week 36

day 248
today was a day with purpose.
i woke with goals and intent on getting so many things done,
things that use to drive my day to day life.
i found myself smiling and thinking this is good, i feel busy
and needed and good. . . 
but then it dawned on me that i really need to move beyond
all of that, the old me, whose soul purpose was taking care of
everyone else. . .  there has to be balance. 
there are times that i don't really know what to do with
this new me and i am not sure how to fill my time. 
some may think; boy that is a tough thing to struggle with.
and guess what? they would be right. 

i made this today with the last of the blueberries
and it was amazing!
