12:29 Scribe: just a placeholder - the image was a part of a problemsolving series on IdeaSpace - the post was titled "Corn Maze" 26 September (Year 41)

Tunnels take many shapes, sizes & forms. Corn mazes are paths worn into natural corn rows, winding through a field. Sometimes dead-ending. A path may fork. There is usually a shortcut & a longer, more circuitous route. You are constantly trying to get your bearings based on your surroundings. The goal? Find the exit. 

Problem solving, like finding the way out of a corn maze, involves a mix of methodical thinking & creative exploration. Experimenting by trial & error, working through possible solutions.

* See the tunnel in the photo? Think of a problem.

* See the corn stalk wall? What factors do you need to consider?

* Focus on the farthest point you see. What’s the easiest solution? Pros/Cons?

* Imagine beyond what you can see to where the corn row ends. What other possible solutions are there? Up/Downsides?

12:36 Scribe: one last note before I head offline... this morning I was thinking about how so many random bits we sometimes pull together into a cohesive whole (how creatives can, for example, create a storyline based ... perhaps just off of a series of photographs)

v- thank you...
