What Is Bliss? Photo101

For today’s theme of “bliss”, my thoughts drifted back to basics.

For me, bliss is gentle and ethereal … a fleeting feeling based on who I’m with and what I’m doing.  It’s rarely complicated.

Bliss is feeling comfortable and content, knowing I’m in a safe place with those I love, and who love me back in equal measure.

Bliss is that delicious tired feeling after a day of adventure, exploration, and fun.

Bliss is a much needed nap in the afternoon, or a full night’s uninterrupted sleep.

Theo … my not-so-little bundle of furry bliss.

Bliss is the anticipation of doing it all again.

  2. You hit it right on. Bliss – that place where one just belongs. Where every little corner breeds familiarity, where it is safe and warm and comfortable. And where one is completely and totally accepted. The cat sure has found his “bliss”. That really is a wonderful photo.

    Sleeping Cat = Bliss. Simple equation, one that Theo has no issue following 😉

      I will do!
      Right now he’s “resting” on my bed like he normally does at this hour, shedding hair all over.
      Because I’m allergic to cats, I have to keep a special Theo-Blanket over the bed to keep his hair off any surface I will actually sleep near. Thankfully this actually works, so we can live together peacefully 🙂

    Bliss if falling asleep with your cat on your lap. For me anyway. ❤ ❤

      Isn’t that the truth?!!
      The quality of the previous night’s sleep sets the tone for everything the following day. Sleep can be a very fickle and elusive little bitch, but when she decides to visit … ahhhh!
