Day 336 & 337 – May 6 & 7, 2013

Having a heavy Peking style dinner on a Monday evening means a sleepless Monday night.
Thankfully, I made it through my big Tuesday workshop.

I am also grateful for…

1. A happy evening celebrating my friend Triny’s engagement.

2. Brutal honesty and the quality of being human Teflon – some things are not meant to stick.

3. The support work that my colleagues do behind the scenes.

4. A very successful workshop in spite of the politics involved.

5. Revisiting a great little cafe that serves great coffee.

6. Seeing the kids in a great happy mood.

7. Thinking about a holiday.

8. Funny conversations.

9. Great tandas at tango.

10. The beautiful time I have had at the Helena May, dancing tango. Thank you.

The Helena May.
I will miss the chandeliers.


Day 309 – April 9, 2013

Tuesdays are my tango days.
What a night.
Danced from 8:30 till 11:30 nonstop… My feet are sore but I am happy.
And coming home to a snuggly puppy… I am tired but happy.

Today, I am thankful for…

1. A very smooth start to my day.

2. Yet another great workshop with some really lovely people.

3. Eye candy.

4. My colleague Emily’s thoughtfulness throughout the day.

5. A new programme that worked out well.

6. The showcase breakfast was a huge success.

7. A glass of wine at the end of the day.

8. Happy dancing at my tango night.

9. My puppy sitting on my lap watching me type away on my iPad.

10. How warm my home feels with a dog in it.


PTS – Post Tango Syndrome

After a good night at tango, I get PTS.
Post Tango Syndrome.

Symptoms include: calmness, serenity, giddiness, happiness, relaxed mind, positive thoughts, warm fuzzies, halo of love, energy boost, good sleep, sweet dreams, flushed cheeks, smiley face, great hair, beautiful skin and other feel good factors.

All I do is just dance.
Listen to the music.
Listen to my partner.
And dance.

No matter how listless, tired, grumpy or deflated I was before a milonga, I always come home with a spring in my step after a great night of tango.

Don’t take my word for it, try it.
