On the Road Show Excerpt:

The rested dragon stretched as sunlight flickered on the floor of the cozy cave.  It was morning and the dragon was ready for another wonderful day.  Taking a deep dragon breath in and out , the dragon thought about its intentions for the day.


So far, meeting the vehicles had been going well. The trucks had been considerate to the forest and seemed pretty fun.  The construction vehicles had been very kind and interesting, and the dragon was invited to visit them again.


Today, however, the dragon was feeling brave and decided to walk over to the road.  The adventurous dragon smiled, stepped out of the cave, and began making its way to the road.


At the edge of the enchanted forest the dragon peeked out from behind a sturdy tree.  On the ground just a little ways away was the road.  The ribbon of gray snaked along the ground just outside the forest.  The dragon watched as a red car, a white car and a black car came whizzing by.  Where were they going, the dragon wondered, and decided to follow the road as long as there was forest next to it.

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.
