The antigravitational shop; Lucy’s childhood sanctuary. Down was up and verse-vica. Lying on the ceiling to look up at the floor. No gravity – only whimsy. Weightlessness of freedom.
Current heaviness of being brought her back in search of the familiar down-side-up door. The ethereal lightness when she stepped inside the shop. Needed to float as when a child.
Panic dragon awakening. Lash of tail. Roughness of scale against smoothness of mind. Where was it? Why couldn’t she find it?
Then! Of course!
Her antigravitational shop was now an out-side-in boutique. Lean against door push. Listen for friendly twinkly “come out” bell to sing.
