Sitting and thinking....

Just got back form Tango de los Muertos in Boston... Great.. Influx of emotions, seeing old friends... Making some acquintances into new and close friends... Making some good old friends into mere acquintances. Evolution of my tango experience, along with my life and friendships...
Tired, sore...Filled with bliss non the less.. This is why I love tango...
But here is a question for you.. Do you think these kinds of festivals make us younger or older? I mean, going to bed at 7 am three nights in a row, during a regular weekend, Flying long distances for tango, sleeplessness, aches and pains on my back and feet, blisters... Dancing until I feel like I am no longer dancing, but in some sort of a trans, whirling like dervishes...
Have much to reflect on. Cannot write what I have not yet internalized. Give me some time:)
But I wanted to share this beautiful thing on Youtube. I want to share that with you. 500 years of women in paintings... It is really beautiful. Seeing it made me think a little. Many artists throughout centuries tried to capture the woman in a moment, in a mood, in a mind set. What is beautiful is that their cumulative efforts really truly captures what a woman is. I see my self in every sort of mood in this presentation, ever so changing, some times ugly, sometimes pretty, sometimes shy sometimes promiscuous, sometimes strong and sometimes vulnerable, happy and sad....
Take a look:


  1. You were in my home town! I was there to the bitter end and beyond every night, you should have stopped me and said hello! I was hosting Sunday's milonga and running around like a chicken in between dances.
    I hope you enjoyed the festival, it really is the only festival in Boston worth coming to.

  2. Hi Debbi:) It was a great festival and I want to thank you for being part of the team that made it such a success. With respect to coming and saying hello, I should have.. Although I think the reason was I do not want to meet the the fellow bloggers who I appreciate at a milonga. I would much rather meet them over coffee. But I would not know how to arrange a meeting of such. So I let this chance pass bye, hopeing that there will be better opportunities in the future. Thanks again:)

  3. Hi Danzarin!

    I'm so happy to see your new post! I don't have a comment on the festival (although I empathize completely with your poor feet!). But that youtube video is amazing. It was so beautiful, just as you said. I was trying to play "name that painter" as the images changed. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    I look forward to more of your posts, when you have time.

  4. Danzarin,

    Great to see you back, glad you enjoyed TDLM. And thanks for the amazing youtube video, it's just an art piece by itself!

    I know what you mean about meeting other bloggers at milongas... I agree it's nice to have a chance to sit and chat quietly as well :) Would love to have that chance sometime myself.

  5. Hola Danzarin!

    Are you, by chance, a Gemini? Just curious...(grin)
