From Behind the Lens: Finding my bliss . . .

My photographic work at White Sands National Monument is nearly coming to an end. It has been a gift to walk among those dunes, photographing those breath-taking confluences of light and feeling and upon occasion hear the sound of my own heartbeat echoing from the dunes themselves.

As I enter the home stretch, the words of Joseph Campbell have been running through my mind. Campbell once said, “If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are — if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.”

I was reminded of my bliss at White Sands.
