I can see it in my head

I ran across a wonderful quote the other day regarding programming. It almost perfectly describes what exactly I enjoy about programming and why:
Programming…is an act of creation. From a simple thought, and the arrangement of a few words and symbols, a reality is created that did not exist before.
No other activity can keep you in the moment the way that writing software can. At each step, one hundred percent of your concentration is applied to the solving of the current problem. Time disappears.
A well written program is a work of art. From conception to final presentation, the activity is that of an artist – the embodiment of a dream world expressed as an interactive experience for the user. — Peter Jennings
I can see MONOTONE in my head; how it works, how it sounds, and what it is like to use it. I hope I can finish it this weekend.
