Last night, I was sitting on the couch “catching up” with my computer while my son sat right next to me playing his basketball video game. Next thing I knew, it was bedtime for both of us! I think we were in an altered state of consciousness, combining focus and fun. In that state of awareness, all sense of time is suspended. Does time get distorted for you when you are concentrating on something you enjoy, like reading, cooking, writing, etc.?
