Don't chase the music

The lesson I am forever learning and re-learning . . .


Old Marquez from Pompeya, to Carlos Gavito: "Have you come to ask me what to wait for? [ . . .] For the music to reach you and not for you to chase the music."

Gavito: "I never forgot that advice and I still keep repeating it to myself. Don't run. Let yourself move with the music and not with the step."

- "I Wanted to Dance - Carlos Gavito: Life, passion and tango" by Ricardo Plazaola

Being in the moment. Sounds simple but it is so hard to do.
