i am a step one girl...need help with steps 2-100
wow, tough one...I recently heard some (more) great advice from Blair Enns - "Purposeful creative destruction = evolution."
right now it's Bernadette Jiwa, Eric Karjaluoto, Blair Enns, Seth Godin, and Christopher Butler at Newfangled - they are all walking the walk of the kind of "full person integration" that I feel defines modern design thinking.
"step one girl" - I can give you step one for any project on earth. But I def need sidekicks and colleagues for the rest.

America. The beautiful. Who crowns her good with brotherhood, but from sea to shining sea shoots down and locks up young black boys and girls, men and women, with impunity.
To be clear, when I say America, I mean "White America." The America, America sees--wants to see. Not the real America, but the ideal America.

christopher ouellette Our Laboratory for Being Human
J.R.R. Tolkien said that Fantasy is the "back door to your heart." Your willing to explore ideas that may not be safe. There is a very scary political climate right now, but if we start discussing the dark lord Sauron and how he took over Middle Earth, we can actually have a safe conversation in a mirror world.
Fantasy is another place we can go where we can explore ideas, where we can explore feelings, where we can explore things that may not be safe in our world.
Fantasy isn't really for children, because they don't need it...Fantasy is really for us for whom the blade is really dulled and need to be reminded that this world is magical.
Homer used artistic license very openly in The Iliad. Even questioned his entire culture.
That's what Fantasy does - it reminds us of how magical the world that we live in is.
