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 40

day 276
they go away for a few days to celebrate her birthday, 
and i offer to pug sit. 
i stop on the way up and have a crab roll,
and i sit in the sun and read my book,
i manage to eat the whole thing!
the pugs are excited to see me
and i try my best to walk all three of them
after their dinner. . .  
but i am not very successful.
i think i will need to leave Lily at home
in the morning
