Breathtaking

2009 May 12

I was so excited to see how it worked out with Stella and Javier on their tour this year. And this is just soooo beautiful! My piano teacher used to tell me when I practiced the hard parts: don’t forget breathing! This left me breathless, so dear reader, unless you can keep your breath for three minutes: don’t forget breathing!

    Just the other day, I read a section of Eckhart Tolle’s book, A New Earth, where he writes this about The Breath (page 246): “Being aware of your breath forces you into the present moment–the key to all inner transformation. Whenever you are conscious of the breath, you are absolutely present. You may also notice that you cannot think and be aware of your breathing. Conscious breathing stops your mind.”

    I remind tango students to breathe. It gets them to relax in the moment rather than thinking about steps.

    When did Andrea Misse become Stella Misse? I met her in Chicago in 1997 when she was in the cast of Milonga Boulevard with Leandro Palou.

    Interesting perspective on breathing. Could be a topic in its own right, probably. In my case, I believe it was mostly to avoid suffocation 😉

    Stella is Andrea’s sister, and Javier is ‘borrowing’ her for this year’s tour.
