Henry: In doing anything, the Navajo paradigm is to:

-Think
-Plan
-Implement
-Reflect

Bob: Put yourself in the mind of the weaver. If you were the weaver, what would you THINK? What kind of PLAN would you make? Remember that weavings must be done from the bottom up as you IMPLEMENT that plan to bring to life all of the symmetries and patterns. Then stand back and REFLECT on the process of weaving and the product before you. Skillful creativity involves all of these steps in some way. It is the basis of all discovery.
