What is your favorite way to get lost in simple activity, what's it like when you're in "the zone"?
I've written about this before, but it something I truly enjoy and don't mind talking about it again. I call my activity Wandering Aimlessly.
This began back in the late 90's, after I became fully "netified". I'd be watching a movie or television show, hear something that piqued my interest, and do a web search. Then, I'd just start clicking on random links, going wherever they took me.
I've wasted entire afternoons, truthfully, just wandering from page to page with no real destination. It's simply amazing the knowledge one can gain by reading things that others feel is pertinent enough to post on a website... the validity and usefulness is strictly up to the wanderer, but it just about my favorite pastime that does not include other people.
