Vision and Strategy

Last week we also talked about my chart "Violation Conspiracy" and the possibility of turning it into a board game! Whoa - that's just a cool idea. Something like a large multiplayer game, something where the participants would get the idea by "playing the bad guys" - by collusion with the violating forces.

Paul also suggested that Sticks and Stones could be sung by a women's gospel choir! I think that I need to stretch those interdisciplinary wings even further. These are great ideas.

He reminded me of his mantra about the difference between vision and strategy.
Vision is to see the things I need to say, what artistically I need to do (And why I do them).
Strategy is how to get it done effectively, creatively, artistically.
