A new year tango


I always enjoy artist Ben Vautier’s email updates. They are part concrete poetry and part stream-of-consciousness diary updates.  This week’s missive side-stepped ‘New Year New You’ fatigue and helped me get my 2016 mojo on. He started:

Le temps passé.
je vieillis sans le savoir
Que faire?
Danser le tango
chanter le blues

And here’s my schoolboy translation:

Time passes.
I age without knowing it
What to do?
Dance a tango
Sing the blues

If you’re still in any doubt as to which option to choose, here’s a tango to help you decide, courtesy of Broadway Backwards.

And as if that wasn’t enough to get you fired up for 2016, you can now follow my blog on the lovely Bloglovin site  – just click the link below to follow and explore a world of great blogs this year!
