Generous Goldfish Excerpt:

It was a chilly winter day on Ahway Island. The snow fell softly from big grey clouds, covering all of the sidewalks and streets on Ahway Island. The snowplows had some extra work to do today to make sure that everyone on the island was safe and sound.

Gilbert Goldfish stared out the window of the Ahway Island Animal Shelter with big, happy eyes. He hadn’t seen it snow this much on Ahway Island, and he was very excited! Gilbert imagined all the little kids playing happily in the soft white snow.

Today’s Meditation: Picture floating in the safe and comforting waters of a tranquil pool.
