Inside the pink house, Gracie and Lord Ganesha, and of course the tiny pink talking wonder Musika, sitting on her left shoulder, found themselves in an exotic parlor decorated like something out of the Arabian Nights. Pillows of all sizes, shapes and colors of pink were available for sitting, laying down, propping up or cushioning elbows around a round golden table all carved with exotic designs. Tea was piping hot and available to be served from a shiny, delicately carved silver tea pot in the shape of an elephant. Each tea cup had an elephant engraved on it as well. And the tea? The tea was pink, of course.
Ganesha wanted to know more about Gracie, and Gracie wanted to know more about Yoga*Land and the Yoga Studio. “Well, Gracie, the Yoga studio isn’t what you think it is. For you it is a portal to Yoga*Land” Ganesha explained. “What about for others. Does it really exist?”, Gracie asked. Ganesha had just finished popping a tiny pink tea cake made of an Indian cheese known as Paneer and made with butter and natural sugar. Gobbling it down quickly, he replied “For you it is a portal to Yoga*Land, as I said earlier. But to others, it’s just a very nice Yoga school with very nice Yoga instructors”. Gracie quickly gobbled down her own pink tea cake and asked more questions. “But I’m just an average girl, from an average family, living with my mother in an average home. Why would I be able to have such an extraordinary experience?” She questioned. “Because you are an average girl, living an average ordinary life in an extraordinary way. Because, my child, you have vision and courage and a desire to see so more deeply into the hearts of things. That’s why Yoga*Land became visible to you”, Ganesha told her. “And because in your heart you are dedicated to making the world a better place, to right wrongs and to keep a faith that somehow things can and will turn out better. This is why the portal opened to you”. Musika began jumping up and down on Gracie’s shoulder and clapping his tiny paws, before jumping down to the table to get his own tiny pink tea cake. “I just love to celebrate happy things”, the little mouse said. He took a sip from one of the cups, and then curled up on one of the softest pillows to fall asleep, his little tummy bulging full of tea and cake. Gracie and Ganesha talked on for what seemed hours. During that time, Ganesha learned that Gracie had wanted to be a ballerina, but because her father was still missing in action and there wasn’t much money for classes, it would not be possible. She loved taking classes before she had arrived in Plainville. “Someday, I’ll be able to be a ballerina and maybe even design clothing or be an interior decorator so that everyone can live in beautiful clothes and homes”, she wistfully sighed. “That is very admirable, my dear. And I’m certain that you will”, Ganesha said very genuinely and sweetly. Gracie suddenly seemed very drowsy and found herself toppling over onto one of the overstuffed soft cushions and falling off to sleep, herself.
