I have been informed by my relations that they would like to give me a Christmas gift of the sort that I would not buy for myself. Something fun and useful. So here’s the question: Do I want a bike to get me to classes and practicas? An mp3 player for listening to tango music 24/7? Or a camera to capture those beautiful tango moments? Those are the top three contenders right now, and I have none of the above in any form.
In other news, I am on the cusp of a tango extravaganza. Or so it seems. After four non-tango days, I get to have four tango-filled days. Three milongas and a practica. And tonight, we celebrate one tanguera’s move to a new place and a tango couple’s surprise announcement (which I already know, and it’s a good one!). I love how we mark these life events as a community.
I am in a strange place right now, with tango. I love it when I have it, but I am completely content on my off days. Maybe it helps to be more regular with my running and pilates and yoga. And knowing that in a week I will be starting my tribal belly dance class. 🙂 But nothing can entirely replace my tango.
