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 45

day 314 || gratitude for . . . 
his unconditional love, his soulful eyes and how he looks up at me so i can snap his photo, free kisses, stellar tail wagging, his persistence in getting my butt out for a walk most days, how he tries to come when called and really does sometimes, his ability to make me calm, how eager he is to always go with me in the car, the many times he makes me laugh throughout the day, his quirky little routines and how stubborn he gets if we don't follow them, his snuggles and warmth in the middle of the night, his ability to hear the tiniest sound outside and his glorious bark, which is really a bay that rolls out from deep within him, the way he buries his toys in the flowerbeds without destroying any flowers, how he is constantly by my side, the softness of his ears and his good health.  ~ oh Basil.
