„Raise your head and don't look at the floor”

Over the last couple of days I’ve been feeling a bit low. While browsing youtube, I came across this video. Here is Carmen Micaela Riso de Cancellieri, known as Carmencita Calderón, the long-time tango partner of legendary El Cachafaz. Celebrating her hundredth birthday.



How could I never have seen it posted before?and how amazing is that?

From her mother she learnt: “Raise your head and don't look at the floor”.

I should stop complaining, really. For the next seventy years anyway.

Good God, that is inspiring! You made my day! And what wonderful advice, in life and dance.

I hope you are feeling better today.

Ich liiiiieeeebe dieses Video, hatte es auch schon mal gepostet. Ist doch mal ein schönes Ziel, mit 100 noch Tango zu tanzen, in den Armen eines lieben Mannes und umgeben von Freunden und Musik. Ach jaaaa....
