CoArising Comprehension

My LeftBrain is busy reading a book on what Systems Theory and thinking and experience find encouraging for WinWin social change, where no losers are allowed to fail at thriving away from WinLose capital stuckness in everyday mundane egocentrism, But, at the same time my RightBrain is trying to imagine how to share scat jazz vocal experiments so other sanctuary choir members can have the same celebratory and non-violent communication through music appreciation that is in my practice practice and procedure skill-set, more intuitive, and less LeftBrain deductive. I get to the bottom of my first paragraph today and realize something has gone quite wrong or right and probably not not seductively left so perhaps intuitively and inclusively correct, true to nurtured experience, helpful, effective, viable, healthy. I reread and realize I'm not only writing in bracketed commentary but also substituting a music paradigm for a therapeutic systems change paradigm. "The [vocal jazz] group also identified several [harmonic] strategies as shown in [chord and rhythmic flow notations] on the importance of [diverse] community engagement." "[Jazz note and timing choices] capture the value of asset mapping to identifying and bridging [musical] opportunity gaps." "[Scat jazz] affirms the [political democratic empowerment] importance of [not just LeftBrain] planning for the built [notation] environment." "[Cleft, rhythm and key] Factors in the upper left corner of the [two-voice] diagram that impact the target [listener's auditory] constraints are [trebleYang and bassYin] shown." "Finally, in its [scaled octave] line[s] at the bottom [through top] of the [musical] diagram, the [jazz ensemble] acknowledge the importance of [vocally] shifting [Left and Right, treble and bass] mental models throughout the [improvisation] process." Seems like a long-winded LeftBrain way of saying Go with your flow of harmonic/dissonant options to achieve our highest and best healthy enriching choices together as both performers and interactive listeners, But, some people don't get RightBrain lost in the details like I do, so maybe some musicians, wanting to make more resonant systemic change choices, would find it helpful for group jazz karaoke night improvising green sanctuary social change through harmonic solidarity.
