In a Groove?

Do any of us really know when we are at our best ? When the best of us shines? My Dad would say he's in a groove....well it was the 70's the last time I heard him say that. Is it a rhythm we pace ourselves to, that helps us get our day to day activities done, or is it a side tracked time/moment when the creating happens? I don't know about everybody else, but lately some of my best/shining moments have been alone. A light bulb moment, a redirect, an idea that can take me in a direction; to create. An energizing surge that motivates. Not a exceptional event, it may be as little as more lighting over your desk, and you realize it's a happier place to work. While driving to work with the radio off, you notice more of the landscape. Lets just say I've been keeping my head down and working hard.
Am I in a groove right now? I don't know, if it's not a groove it's highly motivated place moving in the direction of HiHo growth. I have been working diligently, collecting graphics, ideas, text and merchandise for our new online shopping pages. Aggressively using social media in the preparation of the launch of online shopping at HiHo. I also have been able to ignore my surroundings and stay working in one direction for long time spans...unheard of for me ;) Ha! I just read this back, maybe I'm not in a groove, maybe I'm just growing up? Nah!!
