From Whiskey River:
"What one seems to want in art, in experiencing it, is the same thing that is necessary for its creation, a self-forgetful, perfectly useless concentration."
- Elizabeth Bishop
Now there's a perfectly good excuse for playing SuDoKu at work. The restfulness of numbers and calculations frees the mind to soar and discover. It un-jams the mental gears that are gummed up with office politics, logistical deadlines, and email.
Use that the next time your boss catches you playing solitaire when you should be working!
