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 28
Basil's ficker group, 52 weeks for dogs, wants a photo
with the humans this week, so we practice at the pond. 
the weather is warm and the sun feels so good, but he
has his eye on something and won't look at the camera. 
i see wrinkles on me and grey hair on both of us
and i am thankful we are able to grow old together. 
i also see smiles and love and contentment.
