Daily Prompt 3/9/23

What activities do you lose yourself in?

Haha, all of them except maybe cleaning and other boring work things.

I love puzzles and I definitely lose myself in those. I have to set an alarm for when it’s time to pack it up on weeknights because otherwise I’d puzzle into the wee hours of the night. I have done that, actually.

I also lose myself in seemingly no activity sometimes, when suddenly hours have gone by and I can’t really tell you what i was doing that took up that time. Sometimes I find myself just staring off into space and I’m never sure how long I was doing that. I don’t think I do that for hours, but who knows. I remember doing that as a child too. I’m never sure what pulled me away from what I was doing and I don’t always know what I was even thinking about. I wonder if it’s like a reset or something when my brain is tapped out. I’ve never paid attention to it, other than knowing it happens.

I used to be able to read for hours and lost myself in that too, but I seem to have lost the ability to read for long periods of time several years ago. It’s like my already shortened attention span was shortened even more at that time. I miss reading, though. I love losing myself in books and adventuring to far off places in my mind as I read.
