Why Tango?

Thanks for the lesson.
I'm not prepared for the test.
Is this a pop quiz?

Dear Daughter,
It's surprising how challenging it is to dance 
with partners of various levels and interests.
How important is this to me?
The shoes alone are torture.
Yet they look ever so cute 
and they do change the way you follow,
and how you sense your vertical axis, 
your alignment.

So, this is an experiment: 
I don't know what the outcome will be.
Releasing expectations
I focus on the process.
Feet swollen to numbness...
But no blisters so far.
Sweet dreams,
Your Dancing Mama
