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.

“This is the real secret of life -- to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.” 
― Alan W. Watts

today i want to remember. . . 

the chatter of the birds this morning, the long conversation i had with my sister, the first blossoms on the peas, an hour at the river with the dog, wildflowers and blackberry blooms, sun breaks, the last day of school, the start of a new book, a call from Jordan last night, the first good watermelon of the season and tiny carrots up in the garden. . .
