Dear Tango,

I am going to be honest with you, you have surprised me. After completing a week in silence at a Buddhist monastery cleaning toilets, I thought I had tackled myself. But, then I met you and surprise surprise there is something that can still rile me up. You happen to peel me like an onion. Loosing control in your steps proves hard for me and sometimes I get frustrated. You push me to step out of my comfort zone and shed light on my desire to control- of course that bothers me. While you have yet to totally quiet my crazy mind, deep in my heart I know that if I stick with you, you will. When I lose myself in your steps I feel a sense of freedom and joy. I have a sneaking suspicion that you will unlock something in me that I didn’t know was locked and that there is no mistake I choose to master you this year.

 Love, Kate
