From the great Marc Johns, whose work is peppered throughout Improvised Life. You could say, Create Your Own Crazy Vision is our theme!

The first step:

Listen closely to your heart, ideas, feelings and bring them to awareness…THAT is a practice…

…then start moving toward what form they might take.

Of course, Emily Dickinson nailed it:

I dwell in Possibility –

A fairer House than Prose –

More numerous of Windows –

Superior – for Doors –

Of Chambers as the Cedars –

Impregnable of eye –

And for an everlasting Roof

The Gambrels of the Sky –

Of Visitors – the fairest –

For Occupation – This –

The spreading wide my narrow Hands

To gather Paradise –
