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 47

day 327 || grateful for . . . 
the chores he does, swarms of swallows dipping and diving in the sky, sun breaks, coming to terms with things i don't necessary like, knowing when to step back, garden gloves, watching the dog play with a new toy and getting as much enjoyment out of it as he does, memories, fresh apple cider, my cast iron skillet, the sound of the water swishing in the rowing machine at the gym and how, if i close my eyes, i can almost pretend i am on the water and wondering what that might feel like. . .
