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 || week 42

day 293
i texted her, just to see if they were still here,
and a few minutes later my phone rang. 
we have not seen them all summer, all of us so busy.
but, today we met for coffee, and caught up, 
both of us feeling like no time had passed at all. 
that is how it is with true friends, we both say. 
plans were made for a road trip this winter
he and i down to see them. . . 

now that he is retired!
