Ready for a cloud caper? Claude the cloud takes a break from sharing shade and water until the animals and people need him once more.

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:29

Narrator: Male

Cloud Caper Excerpt:

The little fluffy cloud drifted across the sky.  Claude smiled at the earth below him. He enjoyed bringing water to all the plants, animals, and people.  They seemed so refreshed and happy after a little rain, and Claude had been giving them plenty. For days, the little cloud had rained and rained.  Now, all the plants were a bright green, the lakes were full, and there were even plenty of puddles to splash in.  The little cloud listened to hear how the plants, animals, and people were doing.

The people grumbled as Claude drifted by, “I wish it would stop raining.” Claude was surprised and a little disappointed.  He thought the people would enjoy splashing in the puddles he had made.  The little cloud took a deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath) and decided to see what the animals thought.

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