I hate breaks from tango dancing. All I think about is what I am missing. Tonight I am on a break–not self imposed exactly–I had a meeting for work and it went late–too late–and suddenly I am missing my tango class I paid hard cash to take and sadly—I am also now missing the practica I always go to on Tuesdays . . . .aaaaahhhhhhh . . . . So- I need to rememeber what Chino said to me when I was away from BsAs for several days, out in Santa Fe, AR, and feeling sad because I wasn’t dancing . . .he said, “Don’t worry . . .it’s sometimes good to take a break from dancing; then when you return–it will be there–it will be fresh again . . .it will be good. There will be plenty of dancing when you return.”
I doubt I quote him exactamente–por favor! Pero–it’s more or less–mas o meno–the concept at least. Breaks happen . . . .relax. Tango will be there when you return.
And when you return it will be good–maybe better-because you come now with a freshness that only a break provides.
Such wisdom from a lovely, young Argentinian teacher, barely 27 years old! An old soul for sure.
Despues, may it be so . . . . according to the wisdom of Chino! Come to me—–milonga!
