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 3 || peek-a-boo
there are days now when i feel like i am just peeking at life;
moving through the days, consciously putting in place some kind of sense
of an ordinary routine. . .  in my younger years i did not give much
thought to managing my days, so much of it was out of my control and
i was often on auto pilot trying manage the chaotic, messy beauty of
raising children. during that confusion however, i always had an end
goal in mind, it was never far from my thoughts. today that is not always the case. 
but, lately i feel like i might be getting there. 

i met a friend for lunch and we talked and talked.
the sun was so bright and the sky so blue,
we both commented on the mountain as we
crawled into our cars to head home.
