Destined

On Hwy 52 We were cruising Your Honda and My Passat I followed your lead Enjoyed the scenery on our way When exit 55th was close I felt this poem in my heart – I have to follow my destiny and you yours   Advertisements

Natural Consequence

I don’t try to make a lot of acquaintance friends. I make friends to find close friends. Having a large bunch of acquaintance friends is just the side effect, not the main goal.   I guess it is really too early to write you a X’mas card. But I guess I decided to write you this … Continue reading

Lost and found

I lost the power to love. But I know it will come back again. As it always will. I guess, this time, it took longer. Because maybe I blinded myself to see what I wanted to see. – 2007 Found. -2014

Seedless

I wonder when all these fruits became seedless. You can hardly find an orange that has seeds in it. And watermelons. That is even harder to find. And grapes – red, black, green.

A second time in my life I arrived in the Jorge Newbery airport of BsAs.

1+1=?

1+1=?

1+1 = 2. In this trip to BsAs, I had learned very important lessons about tango.  There are technical aspects of it, which I have yet to practice daily and really let my body learn them.  However, one of the even more important achievements of this trip is the realization that partner dancing is a … Continue reading

Aqua Con Gas

“Aqua con gas” (sparkling water), is one of the few things I know how to say in Spanish.  I think so far it is this and “Gracias” (thank you), “si” (yes), and “no” (no) that made up my everyday Spanish here in Buenos Aires. The occasional “no hablo Espanol” (I don’t speak Spanish), which I … Continue reading

2×4 Tango House

2×4 Tango House

After two hours of practice with Bryan yesterday in the studio of where we stay (2×4 tango house), we went out to find dance shoes.  We took the subte and traveled from the Angel Garllado station to Callao.  Supposedly both the places Bryan was looking for were on Riobamba – Neo Tango and Fabio Shoes.  … Continue reading
