This essay provides a response to the retrospective posting of Lisa Summer's article Music: The Aesthetic Elixir in the present issue of Voices. The response is based upon an exploratory, theoretical “lens” concerning a way of understanding music both as a way of being together aesthetically in time, and as a dimension of health. This understanding of music is subsequently applied to an expansion upon Summer's perspectives on the Bonny Method.
