in flow


after the wonderful weekend full of laughter and great conversation in berlin and a day and a half of meetings and more laughter and great conversation with some old friends in svendborg, one of my favorite places in denmark, i am feeling positively in flow. ideas are coming to me. and with them opportunities and a glimmer of the path ahead.

i must remember what makes this happen...new impulses, great people, laughter laughter laughter, and intelligent conversation (and a bit of not-so-intelligent conversation -- that story of the one-legged boxing would-be bomber is still cracking me up like crazy). plus a little sunshine doesn't hurt either.


the trick is remembering all this the next time there is a flow failure. because that's the tricky part, getting there when you're not. but enough about that, i'm going to relax and enjoy this, my idea notebook at the ready...tho' first i think a good night's sleep is in order.

don't worry, i'll go back to the berlin posts tomorrow, the best bits are yet to come!

if you come up with a working solution on how to keep that flow, well, flowing, let me know--i could use it :)

Good friends, good laughter, good conversation will do it every time for me. Laughter releases more than stress alone, it opens other energy pathways.

Now if only I could figure out how to laugh more often. I want to, I want to!

One thing helps: Don't watch the news on TV.

the color of the sea almost matches your page background. I love all the colors--very autumnal

What a good description of all of that positive, sparky energy. Sadly, I seemed to lose my flow the minute that I got home. I'm worried that my normal life short-circuits flow entirely. Must reshape life . . .

it is hard to get back to that place, but sometimes i feel like you can't be there all the time, the going away from that place is as necessary as the being in it. the ebb and the flow...
