Happy on the road? You bet. For any respectable car culture magazine, after all, being happy on the road is a mandatory prerequisite. Over time, and with a little bit of luck (which is, after all, a close relative of happiness), these feelings cheerfully blossom into an emotional foundation that extends far beyond the car and into every one of our stories and publications. With all the happy perils and possible complications. The makers in a state of flow. Happiness researcher Mihály Csíkszentmihályi describes “flow” as a state of complete immersion and total absorption in an activity.
