Two mornings later, after a couple of quiet, uneventful days, Gracie awoke to a woman’s voice. It was not her mothers, because the woman’s voice, which was very beautiful had a
beautiful Indian accent. Opening one eye only, because she was very sleepy, she gazed around the room in the direction of the voice. It was coming from a vintage television set. Gracie recognized it to be similiar to the kinds of televisions that she would sometimes see in old movies that her mother was watching, as she walked past the living room. Except that this one was pink. And the person on the screen was the beautiful Goddess Laksmi, announcing that it was time for Gracie to do some Yoga. Of course, Gracie didn’t own a pink vintage television and even if she did, it wouldn’t work now that the airwaves were no longer analog. Then Gracie remembered that this was the magic of Yoga*Land, which didn’t rely on the science of gravity, linear time, material reality or anything else she’d ever learned in science class. Quickly she washed up and took the X-17 out of out of her sweatjacket pocket, flipping it open to full size and then properly placing the palms of her hands together and assuming the Tadasana pose, asking for permission from the grand and wonderful Lord Vishnu before stepping onto it. She took a deep breath and began to sit onto the X-17, when all of a sudden, it began to light up around the edges. It had never done this before. It looked like it had runway lights and it began to vibrate. In seconds, it began to lift up off the floor. She could hear Goddess Lakshmi’s voice calling to her to hold on tight. “Where am I going?” Gracie called back. “To Yoga*Land”, she heard Lakshmi’s voice answer.
