Changes

I love how jazz refers to a set of chord sequences as ‘changes’ and the art of navigating these changes as an ‘improvisation’.

Is this not perhaps what life is about? Being presented with new situations and constantly looking at interesting ways of responding to change, thus in a constant improvisatory mode.

If this is the case maybe then there is something to learn from the jazzmen and women around us in terms of how they prepare/not prepare their responses to the changes.
