Travel Theme: Flow

Ailsa’s latest travel theme, at where’s my backpack, is “flow.”

Flow: a state of being,  a state of fluidity. A study of contrasts. Psychologically, a state of flow happens when you become so immersed in your work or activity that time seemingly stands still yet slips away from you at the same time, by definition, an altered state of consciousness. A glorious day at the beach (this one here is the public beach in Manzanita, Oregon), flows for us, leaving us refreshed. Flow is good.
