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 47

day 328 || gratitude for . . . 
a long, comfortable  conversation in the morning with him, the smell of Thanksgiving in the house, anticipation for them to arrive, soup for nourishment before we carb-load, getting a head start on the cooking, thinking of my mother and the traditions i still carry on, a long walk with the dog with beauty underfoot, setting boundaries even if they carry pain, finding joy in that one last trip to the store, the color of cranberries, feeling hopeful and yet cautious and understanding i can only control myself. . .  

thursday || thanksgiving day
