    Dancing was a bit of a surprise to me.

    I have no curtains hanging in my 'zen-room'. My neighbors look at me a bit suspiciously now. They probably think something like: 'weird guy, making strange movements in the middle of the night. Better avoid speaking to him, warn my children, etc.'

    Anyway, it was great.
