So involved with a computer project today that I lost touch with the environment around me - one minute it was 2:00pm and I was thinking about a 3:00pm walk and the next minute it was dark, the sun was setting ...and the laundry was still waiting to be finished!!

As much as I hate missing out on my beach walk (and photo opportunities!), I do enjoy that feeling of intensity - involved so deep that you are somewhat suspended beyond reality...sort of like a drug-induced state, I suppose, except that the brain and the hands are at an ultimate state of productivity and creativity! I remember working on stained glass pieces many years ago with the same intensity...and it happens with photography, as well. I suppose it is the level you seek when you want to truly tap into your passion. I do wish we could transfer those moments into our learning environments a bit more...just think - students and teachers wouldn't want to go home! ;) Naples, FL

  1. That state is flow
    It's what we hope to help our students to experience in their learning.
