    We have had a number of discussions on why we enjoy our dancing and how it makes us feel, but is there anything else you do that provides a similar feeling? I often get a similar feeling when I'm traveling cross country in my vehicle; particularly through spectacular country.

    Yes, when instructing an impaired "first time" adaptive skier - and the family or spouse - realizes - They can actually recreate outdoors together and travel to new destinations to discover the country ski spots, and smiles are never ending and the thank you notes are overwhelming.

    I get this feeling when I am on the plane to Poland, about to see my family.

    One intellectual: teaching, especially when I see looks of dawning comprehension on students' faces.
    One physical: being on, in, near, or under water.

    Dancing for me is only a special-case of a generalized feeling - that of creative and adaptive learning experiences.

    I get the same feeling when I solve a math problem, when I teach someone a new concept, when I'm able to communicate a paradigm-shift to a mentee, when I learn something new and experience that moment of exhilaration that happens when you 'get' something that was eluding you... in general, when I'm able to see a pattern in things and figure out how to ride that pattern...

    Or writing.. when I start out with only a vague thought and the more I write the more ideas flow.. I enjoy reading back something I've written and liking the way I expressed myself.

    When I'm painting. Sometimes it turns out the way I wanted, but just the feeling of making the colors spread across the canvas is wonderful.

    I love to sing and act. Provided the people don't take themselves too seriously, the fellowship is wonderful.

    Being anywhere near the ocean (or a large lake in a pinch), swimming alone (not in a pool) or super strong winds or storms at night. :)

    Motor racing. Weird, but true. I raced karts as a kid and dancing (which I'm very new to) is the only thing that's ever come close to giving me the feeling I used to get from racing.
