Collaboration can be like an episode of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?". Last night I sat at a table with five other creative people. We were planning a music and art camp for the summer. It was interesting seeing all the different personalities and gifts bouncing off of each other. Definitely kept me entertained. Please enjoy my comedic descriptions :-p. There was the "Big idea gal", whose ideas seemed so left of center at times we all wanted to scream. There was the "Let's just keep it simple gal" who didn't seem to enjoy ironing out any details. There was the "The organizer" who sat at the table with pen and paper, documenting every single word that was spoken. There was the "So where are we at now guy" who kept looking over the organizer's shoulder to see what decisions had been made. There was the "Can't we all just get along guy" whose main job was to keep us from killing each other. And then there was me, "The I have no idea what's going on guy". Ha, I was clueless until the last 10 minutes of the meeting. Then it all started making sense to me. Ok ok, so I took some creative license in my descriptions, but you get the point. :-) It takes all kinds to make the world go round, folks. All of us have our gifts, nuances, and idiosyncrasies. It ain't always easy, but magic can happen when we sit down and create together.
