Wikipedia: Since the Second World War the term “Collaboration” acquired a very negative meaning as referring to persons and groups which help a foreign occupier of their country—due to actual use by people in European countries who worked with and for the Nazi German occupiers. Linguistically, “collaboration” implies more or less equal partners who work together—which is obviously not the case when one party is an army of occupation and the other are people of the occupied country living under the power of this army.

I am not one to rely heavily on wikipedia as my fountain of knowledge but I have to say after searching the meaning of collaboration I found this part to be very interesting. Since WW2 I think it is safe to say that the word ‘collaboration’ has been gaining credibility again and hopefully the negative aspect of this word, no thanks to the word itself, more having to do with the inability of the Human race to be humane. Yesterday brought major advancement in the positive application of the word ‘collaborate’ as myself and Agent R busted out some vision board work, and what is this ‘vision board’ you ask? Well, it is the act of translating the vision of the mind’s eye through a tangible media outlet, and in the case of Agent R and myself this was in the from of canvas and paint. The day began with a proper meal at Monki, yum! and than off to the studio, a place where magic is an everyday occurrence. Over the course of several hours, and than some, Agent R and myself let it out, creatively that is. The creative act is one of healing, it is the expression of the human spirit and when in unison the fruits are as magnificent as any on Earth. To share in this experience with someone who understands flow, and who shares a similar passion for the creative act, well the feeling that it brings to mind, body and spirit is beyond any words, and so with that said enjoy the pictures, and may this inspire further collaborative explorations.
