Denesa’s Experience Photographing This Moment

It was bliss that led me to New Zealand’s Catlins, bliss that whispered to stop atop the hill and admire the shore below in the afternoon light.

It was bliss that urged me to return at dawn and follow the rising sun to the pond on the cliff. I owe my creative life to bliss. Through all the nights where darkness seems insurmountable, the promise of dawn lays close, curled around us, subtly urging us in the direction of our bliss. That is where our greatest talents, joys and contributions to the planet await. You are important. Your bliss matters. You are capable of touching hearts, minds and lives. Soar, dear one!
