Flow

John and I were up to the wee hours of the morning talking the other night. (This happens sometimes.)

One of the things we talked about is flow.

There is something that happens when you are operating at your best. A certain magic that takes over. In the movie, Chariots of Fire, Olympic gold medalist, Eric Liddell, says, "God made me fast, and when I run, I can feel His pleasure."

The whole "flow" thing is sort of like that.

I wish I knew the secret to being able to consistently operate out of a sense of flow. (Because when there isn't, I'm disappointed with almost everything I produce.) At the moment it seems random. Sometimes it happens and everything clicks. Other times I feel like I'm in conflict with the world around me.

One thing is for sure. I am way more creative when there is flow.
