I'm taking this seriously. I use LJ for so much, it's time I gave something back. I help out my friends page -- user education, minor support -- but this is more universal.
I trance out. I suppose I dissociate some. I go to that place where I only remember bits and snippets of my thoughts during then. Like reading used to be all the time. Like concert singing is.
It's funny. We spend all this time and effort getting ourselves aware, and present in the moment, rather than doing it all on autopilot, and then we take ourselves back into autopilot for a vacation.
