Emailing a friend today about Flow and its author Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, I rediscovered two things: the source of pleasure in creating (ecstasy) and TED, an online treasure of stimulating lectures.

As I listened to Csikszentmihalyi's lecture, I remembered being lost as a child with a piece of graph paper and a 4-click ball point pen with colored ink, as a teenager with my guitar, as a young adult acting, as an adult writing poetry or taking pictures or researching in a library. Flow feeds me.

And TED feeds me, too, by filling me up with stimulating presentations like this one: "What makes a life worth living?"
