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.

thursday || week 37

day 259 || things this make me happy
wedding napkins, kindness at the dog park, backing away from the stories i tell myself, a wink from the mailman, Basil snoring, blowing off the driveway and the deck, 20 different shades of green in one tree, getting a text that the midwife has been called and later that there is a new baby girl, big brothers, gathering chestnuts, a clean car, leftovers used in a new way, and holy that puts on her fall colors before brining out the red. . .
