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!


About tangobunny

Pastor Bunny went on sabbatical leave to Argentina July 28-November 4, 2010, funded by a pastoral renewal grant from the Lily Foundation. It was her second visit to AR. Since then she's been back three more times and toured the country. She loves the Argentine people as much as the tango and calls Argentina her other home.
