Silences in history. Silences by code. Silences of fear. You already know that Tango’s silences can be sublime and they can be devastating.
What I do in my blog is use myself as a lens – sometimes a microscope, sometimes a telescope. I try to be as honest with myself and you as words concede. Then I try to find a deeper meaning and imagine a pathway for us.
A blog post can be a fragment, a wisp of inspiration, an outline for thinking. A book must complete and reconcile it all. Now I drag the social scientist to the scene to enumerate the facts of the case, the mystery which brought both stardom and tragedy to my life.
I invite you to join my resolution to take a look at the dark silences of Argentine Tango in our lives. It’s time.
