On Saturday, my sister, a college friend of hers, and I went to Ojo Caliente, a spa built around a natural hot spring.
It was pretty relaxing.
Part of the package we got included a "wrap," where after you get hot...
They put you under a warm blanket to "detoxify" you.
The view for an hour: two slits of light through a mask of darkness
After I got past the thoughts of this being the premise to a cheezy science-fiction movie where aliens trick humans into willingly being mummified so their organs can be harvested to make pâté, I found it quite relaxing and meditative.
Afterwards, my sister asked me how it is that I'm so good at getting into a zen state, anyway.
"I had a lot of practice in high school English," I said.
