OK?  What Next?

Where Am I?

Who Am I? 

Am I? 

* Watching Charlie Rose last night interviewing Rem Koolhaus, writer and architect, I shook out of a daydream to hear a cut and paste of::

Charlie: ".... writing or building?" 

Rem Koolhaus:  Writing is analysis,  I am a "monk in a cell, capturing a reality or a new reality in the world of ideas," insight, "world of observation," solitary...."Building is a team effort, a collaboration, social....". 

"Analysis is often what triggers innovation."
Be in both worlds: "Analysis is the basis for new thinking"
Analysis and Intuition: both are necessary:  The Best of Both Worlds

 Charlie Rose:  "The world of ideas is where you start."

Experiment:  One Minute Writing:

Close eyes, pick a book, any book or E- book chosen at random, phrase, or song lyrics.  I reached over and chose ("surprize") ** Shirley MacLaine's book It's All in the Playing.

Open a page at random, what is the first sentence or phrase your eyes perceive?  Close the book without reading any more.

Quote to Ponder: "Let me think about it all tonight," he said. 

Set a timer for 60 seconds and spontaneously write (right) like crazy!  Running on Auto Pilot "NOW"~

"Let me think about it all tonight," he said."

"See You Around," I replied sullenly.  I shut the door and sighed.

"What if he calls? What will I do?"

"Worse Yet, What if he Doesn't Call?"

Rem Koolhaus:  "Architecture is like script writing, recreating daily life from scratch."

Key Word: "Writing"
