In his seminal work, 'Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience', Csíkszentmihályi outlines his theory that people are most happy when they are in a state of flow— a state of concentration or complete absorption with the activity at hand and the situation. The idea of flow is identical to the feeling of being in the zone or in the groove. The flow state is an optimal state of intrinsic motivation, where the person is fully immersed in what he or she is doing. This is a feeling everyone has at times, characterized by a feeling of great absorption, engagement, fulfillment, and skill—and during which temporal concerns (time, food, ego-self, etc.) are typically ignored.
In an interview with Wired magazine, Csíkszentmihályi described flow as "being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. Your whole being is involved, and you're using your skills to the utmost."
To achieve a flow state, a balance must be struck between the challenge of the task and the skill of the performer. If the task is too easy or too difficult, flow cannot occur.
The flow state also implies a kind of focused attention, and indeed, it has been noted that mindfulness meditation, yoga, and martial arts seem to improve a person's capacity for flow. Among other benefits, all of these activities train and improve attention.
In short, flow could be described as a state where attention, motivation, and the situation meet, resulting in a kind of productive harmony or feedback.

His group of investment companies called Level One owes 1.5 billion euros ($2 billion) to creditors led by Credit Suisse Group AG, according to estimates by the German administrator. The two main holding companies defaulted and were placed under court administration in August, U.K. filings show, after the group bought 27,000 units of communist-era public housing in the former East Germany over three years, almost entirely with debt. read more

turnip prize or eurovision
hump the toaster
trevor mcdoughnut or alastair campbell
god save me from a Canonbury weeping willow
new river walk is a drain with poisoned ducks
the birds sat stiff and in a daze, what is in that water
a new river - a stagnant pool
and the weeping willows remember a better time
to be in Islington...
past the essex road
I get to the canal
I see a large opening
I'm listening to London Zoo
The guys fiddling with their longboats
Don't seem pleased to be there,
I gaze into the large opening,
A grand vista,
A rectangular pool of Canal water.
In the distance a half demolished building,
I can make out the insides of homes,
A freeze frame of a dynamite demolition.
LONDON ZOO LONDON ZOO
What animals have escaped
and are roaming the streets?

sang a song of suckling
and this little piggy
rode a white swan
and this little piggy
in an english country garden
while this little piggy
gatecrashed a new cross squat
