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 78
he came out and helped us in the yard today. the two
of them burned winter fallen branches and pruning
leftovers. the dog and i worked in the flower beds. 
at one point i stopped and laid on the grass in the sun, 
which made the dog so very happy. he snuggled in close
as i closed my eyes.  
this is what i heard. . .  

bird calls, a lawnmower, children laughing, a faraway dog barking, the first hummingbirds, some kind of saw, a car going down the hill and i swear, i heard the earth smile as she warmed up.
