That's why I said "kind of."

Let me get this straight. So by "dancing in the rain", you don't mean that instead of waiting for the storms of life to pass (undesirable circumstances), you should get out into the middle of the storm and dance (delight) in it instead, making the most of the situation, using the storm to your advantage? That's what I thought you meant. To me, that's what it is to be at the center of fortune's wheel instead of being slung around on the rim. What do you mean?

Of which I remain unsure.

There is a story about the great master Yaoshan just sitting. His teacher, Shitou, practicing together with him, asked, "What are you doing?" Yaoshan replied, "I'm not doing anything at all." Shitou said, "Then you are just idly sitting." Yaoshan replied, "If I were idly sitting, I would be doing something." Finally Shitou said, "You say that you are not doing anything at all. What is it that you are not doing?"

Yaoshan said, "Even the ten thousand sages don't know."

Yes, there's singing karaoke with Scarlett Johansson, but that's about it.

It's life, Jim, but not as we know it.

oh then we do mean the same, i guess i was blinded by my disbelief in fortune. see, i don't believe in fortune. i believe that even though it rains sometimes, we also make our own storms. if you fart today, there's a storm in asia. or something.

this is too complicated for the early morning

Nope, but, as do that usually after having taken a shower,
it is the prelude for the artful treatment of face, neck & upper body with NIVEA soft....

A boyfriend from a long time ago used to like to brush my hair for me, and when he did it, yes, it was an art.

He started by stroking his fingers gently through the big tangles. Then, starting at the ends, very slowly and patiently he would work up and through it in sections as though it were spun out of something precious. When he was finally done, he would make a precise part, and arrange it around my shoulders the way he wanted it.
