Every Milonga is an oppportunity to have a new experience—-you may, as I have,
meet someone new at the milonga–have a whole new feeling then about the community–That is what happens when you meet somone new in the tango community–you have a whole new feeling about it–and you and us! So-last night I met an archeologist! I am a pastor–in the last quarter of my journey on the earth–she–in the first–or–maybe–second–hard to tell—nevertheless–I said, “Hi, I don’t think we have met . . I’m Bunny” “Hi” she said–I’m Caitlin. . . . and then we were off–I see you every night– . . .. yes–I see you too . . . .etc etc etc—why didn’t you dance with that guy–he’s smooth–Oh–I am just so tired and sore from my exercise class–didn’t think I’d dance at all tonight— . . . . Oh . . .and now some guy comes and I go to dance . . . but now we are connected . . . . . .we found each other–I know she loves to teach–loves being an archeologist–and I know one can make a living doing that–there is work to be had etc etc . . . . .who would guess—she’s lovely, tallish, blonde, beautiful, slinky black dress–nice dancer . . has learned mostly from going to milongas–not classes–grad student economy etc—. very sweet. . .mmmmmm  . . . .The night before–Sunday–a new milonga opened—celebrating nuevo tango musica–the organizer and host–has NEVER ever asked me to dance —but this night he did–twice– . . . .the dancing was very nice indeed . . . creative and musical–but the next night–it was as if I was invisible–I hate this about the milonga codes— . . .it’s gotta evolve . . . really . . . .I am  so glad to now be able to lead . . . .(Kate Wolf sang once: “You can’t take me anywhere I don’t already know how to go” . . . .)  Oh my gosh!  The ladies were so after me at the Sunday night milonga–there was a great dirth of male leads–so sad–but hey–for us ladies–it’s really not about anything but the dancing . . . .well . . . . . mostly!  Sunday night was awesome.  Monday night : my favorite regular partner was divine! Stan is the man! So musical–so lovely!  I go home sweetly tired, full of joy and gratitude!


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.
