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.

monday || week 37

day 256
the heat kicked on this morning, it was that cold;
i turned it off and bundled up, knowing the sun
would warm us up in a few hours.
there was work in the garden,
a few potatoes dug for dinner
and lots of deadheading. . . 
i sat on the lawn and watched the leaves blow
in the tress across the street, flickering yellows and
flashes of silver, while the dog sniffed the perimeters of the yard
checking in with me every few minutes.
i sat there for over an hour
just watching and noticing
and giving out tummy rubs when asked.
