My Thoughts:  Throughout the book the Vision boxes are called mojo boxes, shrine containers and Montano himself refers to them as "Dream boxes.  These boxes are collections of special moments in a persons life and the directions given throughout the book are very easy to follow.  They make great momentos for travels, special moments, special things.  I loved the book.  The pictures are so inspiring and I could hardly wait to complete my first one.
