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.

sunday || week 10

day 64
we wake to blue sky and i am hopeful and determined
to get out into the garden. i layer up, find my hat and
dig out a new pair of garden gloves. the chill in the air
sinks deep into my bones and i don't last long, calling to
the dog that i am heading inside. we fumble through the
rest of the day, doing odds and ends around the house
and i wonder. . .  

is it bad to pray for spring?
