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.

wednesday || week 9

day 60
the dog and i head out to see if we can find spring, or signs that
she is at least on her way. last year the flowering quince was already blooming
as were the camellias. my roses were pruned and the rhubarb up a few inches. 
i remind myself that each year is different and that within that year,
seasons move according to whispers from the earth. 
i am reward with tiny signs, a stem bulging with wanna be buds, 
camellias with flowers teasing us with faint colors, just not ready to
show them off yet. spring is flirting with us, and i will take what i can get. 
observant and grateful.
