Paradise, part five of seven

V. The Yogi.

He is sitting on the floor, cross-legged, meditating. His breath is slow, deep, even, and controlled. His body is lean, hard, yet relaxed.

Suddenly his eyes flash open. "Hello," he says calmly.

"I have studied from all the masters. I know how to breathe correctly. I know how to stand and sit correctly. I know how to stretch my body, and I am extremely limber. See?"

He pauses for a moment, then launches slowly into a headstand and lets his legs fall into a split. From this position, he continues talking.

"I began studying when I was a young man to become a great yogi. I have spent my entire life dedicated to this task. And what a payout for my efforts! Look at the things I can do!"

He demonstrates.
