Strength and love to all the people affected by this global crisis, not only the sick and their caregivers but all the lives and livelihoods disrupted. It is troublesome to watch friends and neighbours afraid to get too close to each other and I hope that this distancing will not become a part of our collective conscious for the long term. We know that fear is the opposite of love yet at this moment choosing caution is caring and social distancing is love. We are taking in the message that the other is dangerous and that contact and closeness is irresponsible. Amidst all of the isolation I hope we can isolate this moment in time as a necessary measure but return to feel safe to embrace and to be embraced. The comfort of closeness and touch is vital to our well being and our humanity. Sterile environments as a norm would be much worse for our immunity. If something good can come let it be greater self awareness, empathy and critical thinking. 

Abrazos, Deborah and Santiago

::: Featured Tango :::

Peregrino y soñador,
quiero mi fantasía
y la loca poesía
que hay en mi corazón!
Lleno de amor y de alegría,
volcaré mi pasion.

Siempre sentí
la dulce ilusión
de estar viviendo
mi pasión.

Si es que no vivo lo que sueño
Yo sueño todo lo que canto,
por eso mi encanto
es el amor.
Mi pobre alma de bohemio
quiero acariciar
y como una flor
