i had an idea today just before my bikram yoga class was set to begin. the lights were off. i was lying on my back, breathing in the warm air--readying my body and mind for the ninety minutes to follow. and for a moment, my focus left my breath and drifted to the prospect of something truly spectacular: imagine if you could take a pill that would allow you to glow from within, making it possible to do anything--yoga included--in the pitch dark. your color, of course, would be up to you. patterns, a possibility.
even after sweating buckets, the notion still thrills me.
