Aside from cycling my whole life, back in the day I was totally into wind surfing,
mostly in Michigan.


When you catch a good breeze and you're planing at speed, it's as if you are on a magic carpet ride.
That was one of the most reliable ways for me to experience "flow", that feeling
when you are completely "in the zone" with no other intrusive thoughts.
I have wondered if that's what Buddhists mean when they describe meditating.
Some mathematicians have describes a mental state like that also.

I miss it greatly.
