    1. I suppose if I put it to mind, I don’t find inspiration and planning mutually exclusive! I bet even the most ingenious criminal adapts to the unexpected as he works out his art. A few months back I watched the old film Topkapi – a museum jewel heist – in which many spontaneous events nearly derailed the crime, yet creative adaptation prevailed and the jewel was in fact whisked away successfully!
