I wonder if I had learned to dance the tango many years ago, whether or not my life would be different.

Music is the voice and language of the angels ­ sometimes the Voice of God (himself or herself). It makes no rational sense (and except as a vehicle for propaganda) serves no purpose; but to move within the music with dance ­ the melody, countermelody, texture and tempo ­ is to have the angels breath inside me; to become one with the gods and goddesses ­ and tango (with its roots in the whorehouses of Buenos Aires) ( a fact that some people would prefer to ignore) is a dance form that fuses elegance and sexuality, passion and sensuality, and makes possible the physical embodiment and expression of this Voice of God.
