A Recipe:

Take one idea.

Smash it with a hammer, careful to save the resulting shards.

Study each separate piece.

Turn it this way and that.

Find out what it is made of.

Find out what it suggests.


Reconfigure the pieces in a new way.

Don’t mind if they are sloppily joined,

Or if they don’t make the sense you supposed they might when you first began.

Allow the new connections to tell a surprising story.

Be surprised.
