corner view "bliss"

I´m constantly chasing bliss, reminding myself to recognize it, and reveling in it when I do. The best, though, is when you are not looking for it and it suddenly hits you... For me it´s a wink hello from some one you love, hearing my children laughing together, Coco curled up in between my legs, lying in bed in the morning and listening to the birds singing, chocolate cake for breakfast...

These were taken on a recent walk. Just me and my camera... Total bliss...






Next week´s theme is "Daily."

Happy Corner Viewing!

Hello Jane, it looks like there was really no one else but just you and your camera.

I regret I have to miss Corner View this week. My posting schedule is kinda a little out of whack:)

Maryline said...

Nice bliss when you notice that people on the other side of the planet share your feeling !!
Have a nice day !

Le blÖg d'Ötli said...

Perfect... bliss is everywhere... We have to open our eyes... our minds ;)

Cate said...

chocolate cake for breakfast? in the south, we call it a whore's breakfast which, for me, makes it even more blissful (if that's possible). such gorgeous pictures, jane, as always. i feel the bliss from here.

Tally said...

Bliss was a wonderful theme. I was mulling on it all week. That drew the bliss to me even on a non blissful week and made me aware of bliss that I might have not noticed / juged as bliss.

Daan said...

Mmmm, Bliss all over!!

If Jane said...

what a great thing to chase: bliss!!

Elisa, Croatia said...

I love the last picture,with the snail trying to "walk" up"

Cabrizette said...

Yes, sometime, the more difficult is to recognize it... but you did it ; )

Janis said...

...and coffee :^)

Lovely way to find bliss... on a walk, photographing beauty (oy vey, what beauty) and thinking your own thoughts... AND Coco, always.
xo...

AG Ambroult said...

a girl and her camera is bliss for sure. And I think that little snail is having a little euphoric moment of his own

Valerie said...

what a bliss to look at your photos !
I particularly like this cute little snail ;)

Jane, now that we are so many playing along I was wondering if it would be possible to add a link widget in the wednesday post for the ones who plays to enter their blog post link... I have troubles due to lack of time visiting the CV friends and since a part of us don't play every wednesday, it makes it even more time consuming to check each name in your right column...
Maybe my basic english doesn't make much sense so please view this example to illustrate all this =

The snail. That little tiny snail in all of that lush flowery landscape. it's just so precious.

So, so true! I feel like time stops sometimes when I'm taking pictures and I think that's what bliss is - when you're so caught up in joy that you lose all track of time. Delighted to have found your blog!
