The Zone

There's nothing quite like that state of mind known as "the zone". It's where creative types lose themselves in their work, possessed by the Muse and generally oblivious to the world. Slipping into the zone is just as great a getaway as any substance-induced high. Kinda makes me wonder whether anybody has done brain studies on artsy types to see if our brains' pleasure zones are activated during frenzied creativity.

And is there a relationship between these inspired highs and the high number of depressed writers?

Food for thought.
(is that a brain snack?)
