“I have learned to pay attention to my instincts and take notice when I feel anxious—to remove the pebble from my shoe before it blisters, get the chicken bone out of my throat—in short, to be mindful of feelings and emotions and work with them, not run from them.” 
― Joan Anderson, A Year by the Sea: Thoughts of an Unfinished Woman


I think I have always had a deep yearning to do something more than line everyone up and take their photo, but that is what I did for many years. Today I rarely leave the house without a camera. I focus on the simple everyday moments of our quiet life with gratitude and mindfulness. 

I pay attention. . .  

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. 

You can also find me at Hello There, Friend writing a bit about life. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.
