Picnic Parade Story Excerpt:

Ada’s job was to scout out good sources of food. So, where should she go today? The little ant decided to follow the cloud. Maybe she would find something new. The little ant trotted across the forest floor over rocks, under logs, and around trees, until she came to a grassy plain. There was something new there. Ada tiptoed cautiously onto a soft red square. Then the little ant stepped onto the white square next to it. The white square was just as soft as the red square. The checkered cloth extended in front of Ada all the way under a large basket. Ada wondered what was inside.

Meditation Description: Today, enjoy the feeling of your body relaxing into the warm sand on a sunny beach.
