Possum Playdate Excerpt:

The soft glow of moonlight blanketed the Ahway Island Forest. The leaves of the trees shimmered in the moon’s gentle silver light. Fireflies twinkled amidst their branches. The air was filled with the soothing sounds of chirping crickets and the occasional hoot of an owl. It was a truly beautiful evening.

Petunia Possum had just awoken from her sleep. With a yawn and a stretch, she poked her head out from the hole in the tree stump that was her home and looked around.  Petunia decided it was a lovely evening for a walk.

Today’s Meditation: Love flows through you in this meditation as you imagine a baby fawn and mama deer.
