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.

wednesday || open mind

day 32
the day is full of deliberate and genuine conversations and i understand how lucky
i am to be heard. i work hard to listen and see so clearly how in the past
i lived for the future and how now i often live in the past. at times
i feel as if i have nothing to look forward to, while in the past there
were constant transitions on the horizon. i see that i am stumbling with
this open-ended path but also understand  we are so blessed,
and so fortunet  to have wonderful opportunities awaiting us. . . 
tiny steps and being open to what might lie ahead is  
a good start. life is not always laid out in a clear direction. and
in the right frame of mind that is pretty magical.
