I’m not really a designer but I have designed some things.
Also I’m a beginning woodworker with little actual hands-on experience.
Likewise, I’m not really a songwriter but I’ve written about 30 songs.
I have a similarly strong interest in photography but it has never been the main focal point for me.
But somehow, whenever I’m designing something, building something, writing songs, or taking pictures, I never feel like I should be doing something else.
It’s a temporary state of bliss. Minutes and hours can pass before something calls my attention back to the rest of the world. It’s like those TV commercials where everything is suspended in time while the ad emphasizes the product being offered.
Nothing else seems to matter at that moment. I am right where I want to be. I’m enjoying every second, claiming every moment. My whole body, mind and soul is engaged. I’m extremely “present”. It’s a really great place to be. Total bliss. The Creative Zone. It’s what keeps me coming back for more.
I think it is a clue pointing me in the right direction that I need to take note of and pursue.
