In this interlude, the author reflects on her experience of dancing the last waltz of the evening with Leo, a retired physician who also happens to be her neighbor. She describes Leo as one of her favorite partners in ballroom dance. He has a somewhat unique, syncretic salsa dance style. As he and the author were dancing the last waltz of the night, David played a vocal number. She sang along, and Leo didn't seem to mind. The author claims that while dancing with Leo, she experienced a pleasurable moment of just disappearing, as is often the case when she smooth dances with him. She was awakened by the closing refrains of the song. As she moved toward him and they were poised together, they turned as one entity. They continued to turn together as the final cadence of the song sounded.
