A little help from my friends

I would like to have the Song Patrol up and running. A friend asked in an email today, "What's your plan?" That is just it. I don't have any kind of plan. I only have a vision. I don't do too well with the plans. I don't know how to start. When we crossed back into the USA from Mexico I noticed the border line on the bridge. One moment you are in Mexico and the next moment you are in the U.S. So what would happen if a person just started playing a song while standing right on the line? If the Mexican authorities came to harass, couldn't a person just step to the side and be in the U.S.? And then the vice versa?

A plan. I wish I had a plan. I see it very clearly in my imagination but how will I make it happen? I cannot do it by myself. I guess that means I need advice and input from my friends--and maybe people who I haven't met yet. But there are major pitfalls there. When I tried floating it publicly (on FB) it veered away from the direction I wanted to take it. So it is hard to involve others at the planning stage because they don't see it the way you see it. And yet you need those others...so I am stuck I suppose.
