Flower Power

Category A lends itself to your making a beautiful word flower in the first 20 minutes of class.

For example, in the Henry card talk tableau vivant creation process in Phase 1 of the star sequence, the petals of that flower are made up of:

Henry…plays violin…with a giant…in Canada… at 5:00 a.m….in the morning.

Six beautiful sound petals make up that beautiful flower.

That’s all I’m going to say about it right now. But I hope those doing the Zoom training appreciate it. It makes it easier to frame Category A. I’m asking the people being trained in Category to think outside the box when they teach using Card Talk.

Don’t worry about it if you’re not doing the training.
