Sheer Bliss

Today, Photography 101 asks that we publish an image that represents bliss to us.

Whatever moment I am in – is sheer bliss.

Maybe I am at home, or possibly playing in the paradise I call home.

My ecstasy is surely filled with pure delight.

Spending time with my family – husband, kids, grand-kids, and dogs,

brings pure pleasure to my heart.

My life is filled with bliss.
