“…when I had no worries, fears, or desires, when my life seemed as soft and lovely as lying inside a cocoon of rose silk.”
― Amy Tan, The Joy Luck Club

When one has no knowledge of what the world is all about, I suppose life can be an endless meadow of summer daisies dancing in the breeze waiting for one to bounce along in. If I didn’t know what heat could do to things, I suppose I one could dream of a large cone of chocolate ice cream that I could lick all summer. S-l-o-w-l-y.  
Live in a world I build myself, and like Wodehouse’s Madeline Basett, believe that "every time a fairy blows its wee nose a baby is born."
The world would be one large ball of fluff and music. No tears, no heart breaks, no distress. Not knowing. Ignorance. 
It’s what the word for today stands for.

B is for Bliss.


  1. Yummy chocolate ice cream :D
    Loved it.

    P.S: You should turn off word verification.

  2. Childhood should be about bliss, sometimes that doesn't happen. This makes me sad and angry.

    Great post.


  3. Lovely post :) I'm just visiting from the A - Z. The cocoon of rose silk sounds blissful!

    Have a sweet Tuesday!
