Do you feel "flow" while teaching?

I think it all started with Kohn, to Chomsky,  (side trip to Ken Robinson) to Krashen and then finally to Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - leading me to the source of "Flow".

Csikszentmihalyi proposed that, "Flow is the mental state of operation in which the person is fully immersed in what he or she is doing by a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity."

Recently, I have been more aware of when I reach flow...reading pictures books, teaching adults, and drawing. When do you lose sense of time? Jennie
