Where does one find that ever elusive bliss? Can't it be on clear display so in our search we can't miss? I've been looking awfully hard to get it for myself; I've looked high and low and scoured every shelf. I think I see Cloud Nine from here but it seems so far away Could you perhaps lead me there if you know the way? I tried walking on air one time but that just didn't work out all I did was hit the ground and bloody my poor snout. I tried livin' on sunshine once - it left me quite concerned the more sunshine I got the more that I got burned. Could it be bliss is only for the very lucky or perhaps the blest? I guess I must be niether- only another face among all the rest. So write me when you have the route and I'll set off right away Life is very hard right now - really hoping to hear from you today!

    Perhaps Mel, you are looking in the wrong places. There is sadness and there is joy. Both come at a price. Discover your passion and you may discover your bliss. Allan
