Ashram Resort

  • I'm lying naked on a soft mat in a bright, warm room. Sunlight pours in through the sliding glass doors leading out onto the patio. Around me are various friends from different times of my life. I'm totally relaxed and decide to stretch a bit as I begin moving through a short series of yoga asanas. Others around me join in, surprising me with their knowledge of Hatha yoga. Next to me, Steffany goes into dog pose. I stand up and walk down the hallway, towards the mud baths. There I meet my old friend Stacy, standing nude and covered with freshly-applied blue-gray mud from head-to-toe. She grins widely at me and I join her in muddiness.
