If tango were a videogame…

Level 1
Roses … You are invited to the Grand Ball, full of unknown delights. You are having such fun and you are grateful!
Level 2
Crack … You rush from dance to dance in ecstasy, gathering all kinds of treasure. You are addicted, selfish, insatiable.
Level 3
Heartbreak … Much of your treasure is lost or stolen. You are often disappointed, bitter, and filled with self-doubt. You have some defeats but you stay in the game.
Level 4
Partnership … Both romance and addiction have lost their glamour. To make tango your own, you need trustworthy allies.
Addicts are never trustworthy. Real connection is partnership. The highest expression of humanity is creativity.
You are the Treasure.

Love, TangoForge

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.
