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.

saturday || week 41

day 282
we head out to watch Cannon's game
and i am reminded of days and days spent on the soccer field
the boys are excited and play well
but in the very last play of the game someone from the other
side gets hurt. . .  badly hurt and an ambulance is called
somehow it makes me question organized sports for these ten year olds
and i tell him on the way home i am glad we are all done with that
