Mesmerizing Ribbons Excerpt:

“What a beautiful summer afternoon!” thought Prince Grey Kitty. He was perched in his favorite viewing spot, the windowsill of the great window in the front room. He gazed out of the window and relished the picture before his eyes. The world seemed especially colorful today. The sun shone brightly, and the sky was a beautiful azure blue, dotted with just a few pure white clouds. The trees seemed extra beautiful, with their green leaves swaying ever so slightly in the summer breeze. The movement of the leaves and branches created ever-changing patterns on the ground below as the sunlight filtered through.

Along the edges of the yard, the oleanders were in full bloom, with patches of flowers in white, pink, and fuchsia. On the front porch, which Prince Grey could see from his big window, Prince Grey’s Human had placed containers of bright orange and yellow hibiscus and had hung long planters full of deep red geraniums on the porch railings. Two big pots of purple lavender were placed in the corners of the porch steps. Everywhere he looked, Prince Grey saw beautiful colors. They made him think of his favorite toy, ribbons! His Human had many ribbons and she seemed to think that their purpose was to be made into crafting projects, but Prince Grey knew they were really for him to play with.

The Magic of Colors — Refreshed! Excerpt:

White fluffy clouds dotted the blue sky and sunshine sparkled on the freshly watered plants. A breeze gently ruffled through the branches of the trees, making the leaves flutter. Lydia looked out of the window at the bright blue sky. It was a magnificent day! She began to think of all the fun things she could do outside. She could swing, draw a picture, walk, write a story, ride her bike, or read a book. But just then, her dad walked in carrying some paper, two old shirts, and four colorful containers. “I thought today might be a good day for finger painting!” he said excitedly.

Lydia’s face lit up with a smile. “Ooh, that sounds fantastic! May we paint outside?”

“That is a great idea,” her dad said. “But first, let’s make sure our clothes don’t get dirty. Here’s a smock for you.” Lydia’s dad held out one of the old shirts. Lydia put it on and laughed. The shirt was so big it covered her knees, and the sleeves were hanging off her hands. Her dad laughed as well.

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