  4. Me personally…
    I thinks… the time Wynton finds comes from seeing the relationship of everything in the world. Music colors the world for him but Wynton finds themes relative to the music (or not) that enables him to encapsulate the way he sees/views the world…he does this cross genres in music, books, talks,etc. He also seems able to relate everything in time ie. past or present. That is how he keeps it moving…. Context seems everything to Wynton.

    I also think apart from himself being very, very intelligent, that he has intelligent people around him that philosophize and synthesize and they all do this together….. all the time!!! That’s powerful in itself!

    One key skill I KNOW that Wynton has is that he is a GREAT listener. Maybe because of his musical prowess he hears the TONES of conversations as indepthly as he does the music.
    He is also very able to apply what he learns to EVERYTHING!
    You go Baby!!
