What is it that you do?

"So, what is this that you do? You don't want to teach. You don't want to perform. You don't want to compete. Yet you're going to South America for it! What are you ever going to do with tango?"
I can't explain and that makes my heart ache.
"I'm just going to dance, grandma - until I can't anymore."

"I can't explain"

Did you try "I'm doing it for love not money, Grandma" ? :)
