Abstract

Excerpt

Up against a demanding tennis opponent in the last game of the set, you're connecting with the ball like never before, smoking it into the corners with precision and ease. You're halfway through a workshop you're teaching, and the participants, excited by your material, are peppering you with questions. Your answers surprise you—you hear yourself saying things that you didn't know you knew. Playing jazz piano with your trio, you feel like all three of you are mind readers. As your fingers improvise an edgy melody, the bass player and drummer stay right with you, anticipating and complementing your every move.
