Longing


Feeling and longing are the motive forces behind all human endeavor and human creations.
Albert Einstein


Happiness is the longing for repetition.
Milan Kundera


It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.
George Eliot

I danced the best tandas of my tango life last night. It's very hard to be back in the real world today. I am full of sighs.

Besos to my lovely Thursday tangueros.

we both love kundera!

here is another beautiful one of his, from immortality (or was it the farewell waltz?):

"On the surface, the intelligible lie; underneath, the unintelligible truth."

art and soul. so very tango, don't you think? :)
