To tango as relaxed as a baby being held in water…


To tango as relaxed as a baby being held in water…

This is so relaxing to watch, and so lovely. It also makes me think of tango. It makes me think of how the body records all the times throughout life when we jerk our bodies back from something, from pain or discomfort, and the older we get and the more events like that are recorded into us, the more difficult it is to be as relaxed, vulnerable and soft as this baby.

Life is like an onion, we have to constantly peel these layers of fear off so we can find that feeling of complete safety again. Of course, only with the right people at the right time. Probably trying to do that in the subway during rush hour is not a good idea! Tango can be an excellent vehicle to help peel these layers and get to the softness, albeit often not without some pain and crying, just like when you’re peeling an onion.
