Articulate Airplanes Excerpt:

Recently, there had been a run of stormy weather on Ahway Island. Earlier in the week, there had been a tornado warning. No tornados had actually struck the island, but it was enough to shut down the Ahway Island Airport for a while. And both yesterday and today there were strong winds and lightning, so the Airport staff had decided that the small airplanes, Herb, Holly, Hawk, and Hazel, as well as Harmony Helicopter, should all stay safely inside their hangar instead of risking flight.

 

So, this afternoon, once again, all the little airplanes were safely tucked away in the hangar, as they had been for several days.

 

Harmony gave a sigh. “Ugh! I’m tired of this bad weather. I want to go out in the sky and play!”

 

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating on a cloud, and relax into the feeling of lightness.
