  1. Very cool. thanks for sharing it with all of us.

  2. Joseph Campbell was a very special man. Thanks for sharing. I am definitely following my bliss today. πŸ™‚

  3. A truthful and lovely quote.

  4. LOVE this quote. It was EXACTLY what I was looking for this morning as I started my day with many decisions to make.

  5. Lovely my friend πŸ™‚

    Cheers

  6. Oooh, I really like that πŸ˜ƒ. I’m not feeling quite as blissful today as I was yesterday because I am back to work (yuck!) but I feel bliss calling to me from home and it’s almost time to go home and be reunited πŸ˜ƒ.

    • see you found your bliss–it is waiting for you at home

      • Ahhh, I walked in the front door of my house and bliss enveloped me in peace and happiness. The best part of home bliss today is that my hubby is still on holidays so supper is already being cooked for me πŸ˜ƒ. Did you find bliss today LouAnn? I sure hope so!

      • except when I went for my flu shot–I was none too blissful but it is over so I am back to my bliss–where is that bottle of wine–just a glass–that is my limit

      • It’s good you got your shot – just think of how unblissful it would be if you got the flu :(. Hope you enjoyed your wine :).

      • they have been talking about how bad it could get so I thought for once I would be smart

      • It is becoming a really bad flu year isn’t it? We had two very different types of flu go through our house in the early Fall, and that was the first time I had to pull out the thermometer in years!! We have since had our flu shots, so I am really hoping that’s it for us this year :).

      • I sure hope so too–it is miserable and in some cases, life threatening

  7. I’m counting that Joe was telling the truth, LouAnn. (It’s one of my most favorite quotes. Thank you for sharing it here.)

    • it gives me hope, and hope translates to bliss

      • Excellent reply! Hope is sweet.

  8. No. 1 that open door is so, so inviting – looks like you’d be stepping into the Garden of Eden.

    But no. 2 – you’ve actually made my day with this quote, reminding me that walls can dissolve by our attention to our dreams. It was really powerful to me today : thank you.

  9. Love the quote.

    • thanks Peg–did you like the open door–that took some thought and research

      • You are one smart cookie!

      • aww shucks

  10. I have carried this quote around with me for decades. It’s perfect!

    • glad I found it–the fact that you carry it around gives it credence for me

  11. I just love Joseph Campbell!

  12. Lovely quote and great photo to go along with it!

    • thanks for noticing the open door–took me a while to find it–had to travel all the way there and back

      • I have a “thing” for doors. I always take pictures of interesting doors when we travel.

      • I like doors too – except my front door which I cannot unlock

  13. Oh I so hope that is true!

  14. love that one ~ my very chic & cool “favorite aunt” said that to me when i was a kid and i never forgot it, or her

  15. Oooo… LouAnn, I love that quote. Yesterday I bought beautiful Irises for myself and put them in vases in my kitchen. The blue is so vibrant. They’re gorgeous. I did this instead of going for a walk. πŸ™‚
    Great picture, too.

  16. Ah, I love the quote. And the photo is perfect…beckoning to walk through the arched door! I love your new theme…your one word! ~ Sheila

  17. Ah, can I have a cup of tea with this photo?

  18. Sorry you lost my interest at the mention of the name Llantrisant. some b***** stole my jacket, my car keys, my cash, and my credit cards from my hotel room then did a Bonnie and clyde across the country robbing one person only – me.
    And I was in the shower when said theft occurred.
    Not my favourite place.

  19. Lovely πŸ™‚

    Xx
