The Pillow

The other evening in the early hours of the morning, I awoke with a post's idea swirling in my head.
I wasn't sure what to call it...I toyed with "The love affair"...nah, too presumptuous and leading..."The night time comfort"...also along the lines of the last one...
SO I just decided to call it, "The Pillow"

There are many items in our world that are non human, non animal, but still seem to have "properties" about them. For instance, we all get "mad" at the scale, "love" our latest scented perfumes or creams...and so on...well the post that came to me the other night was something similar...
The Pillow

There has always been a sort of "love affair" with our pillows. We "miss" them when we are away from home, some "hit" them when they are frustrated or mad, we curl them around us to feel "secure", they almost have a personality! There are the newest ones that my husband and I bought from a gadget store in the US for Christmas. It was a love/hate relationship for me really...I "loved" the way it made my body feel higher on the bed and not so squished into the mattress. I "hated" the way I woke up I had a headache and upper spine ache every morning.
My husband "enjoys" his new pillow, and therefore, mine will now be sent along to the new house for him to use when we are there. I can not give my body the unsquished pleasure to the detriment of a headache every day. It was a hard pillow, over supportive, too stiff...

So, the night I thought of this post was when I had switched back to my "old" pillow...the one that I bury my face into and have pillow surrounding me....the one that I can squish around from side to side, but still get a little support. I "love" the mold-a-bility of my pillow, the way it conforms to my head and body. I "miss" my pillow more when I am away than I do my bed...
therefore, I felt like giving tribute, (and find something to write about besides my camera), to the Pillow. A love affair formed over much trial and error, ever changing with time and always plays a supportive role in my moods and feelings when I start a new day :)

Have a great weekend!

Yes! The squishable, mold-able ones are the best!!!

I have one that is mold able. I made a promise, if I go out of the house for more than two nights, I will take my pillow with me ; )


As for the camera, there is this website www.dpreview.com. They have the greatest camera review for you to check.

I love my pillow too and I´m like Fabiola, if I leave for more than 2 nights, it goes with me. Mine is foam and gives me support, but is not as thick as those "formable" ones.
Good idea for a post!

That's so nice you love your pillow so much. For me it's more the bed, but you really did make me think about my pillow and all it does for me!
