Narrator: Female

A Grand Sight Excerpt:

She stretched her wings as sunlight spilled into her cozy cave, warming the condor’s nest.  Now, it was time to soar!  And so, Caitie the condor smiled and climbed outside.  She spread her wings to catch the thermals, air rising up from the canyon floor. Those thermals helped carry Caitie up, up, up, so she could soar properly.  As Caitie’s giant wings extended to their full length, a majestic shadow drifted across the land, and the condor soared.  The finger-like feathers stretched out into the air, as the condor enjoyed the warmth of the sun on her back.

Today’s Meditation: Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.
