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.

day 222 

I head to rowing for the first time in a week. We laugh and compete every so lightly with each other. "I love us." I say to everyone and they agree. I come home spent and energized. I spend time in the garden deadheading, and moving the water. Later I get a pedicure and I make my list for the lake. I call her to double check we are not bringing too much food. After dinner the dog and I head to the vegetable garden to check the zucchini out. "Please pick them when they are little while I am gone, " I tell my husband. I decide to leave the tomatoes one more day when the snake startles me and I scream. The neighbor hollers over the fence to check on me. 

"Just the snake," I holler back, as I head towards the house.
