WDP — Losing One’s Self

What activities do you lose yourself in?

It doesn’t really matter where I am or what’s going on around me. I may be reading my newsfeed. Or maybe I’m looking to buy something on Amazon and I’m reading product reviews. I’m watching a video on YouTube. I’m reading a book on my Kindle app. I’m playing solitaire. Catching up on the March Madness scores. Whatever it may be, my eyes are focused on the screen of my iPhone and my mind is absorbed by whatever it is that I’m looking at.

But it’s when I’m on WordPress that I am fully lost to the world. Thinking about what to write. Planning, drafting, and refining my posts. Reading the posts — some masterpieces, some crap — from other bloggers, leaving comments, leaving likes. That is the activity I truly lose myself in.

    Ditto that. When immersed in writing, I forget to eat, to feed the dogs, to turn lights on as it gets dark outside …. Mainly forget everything – until I have to pee!! ☺️
