More from Csikszentmihalyi......

Last Sunday we talked about the book Flow: The Psychology
of Optimal Experience. This seems like a good time to post
another excerpt:

"How to keep love fresh? The answer is the same as it is for
any other activity. To be enjoyable, a relationship must
become more complex. To become more complex, the
partners must discover new potentialities in themselves,
and each other. To discover these, they must invest
attention in each other- so that they can learn what thoughts
and feelings, what dreams reside in their partner's mind. This
in itself is a never ending process. A lifetime's task."

Sounds fun, though.
