460. Magical Music: a calming bedtime story and meditation

Dragon goes for an early evening walk through the enchanted forest and finds a new little trail. The trail takes Dragon into a magical grove of ancient trees.

Narrator: Female

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 9:39

Magical Music Excerpt:

Sunlight spilled through the thick leaves of the trees in the enchanted forest, creating a colorful lacy pattern on the ground. Dragon gazed up at the sky to see it changing from a bright blue to filling with red, orange, pink, and purple. Dragon did like a sunset walk. Everything seemed a little more magical in the woods. Dragon smiled, enjoying both the warmth of the sun and the cool shade of the trees. As Dragon continued down the path, the gentle melody of a bird’s song circled Dragon. Dragon looked up to see Gerry bird, a friendly robin resting on a tree branch above. Gerry fluffed up her feathers and coasted down to see Dragon.


“Isn’t it a beautiful evening!” she sang.


Dragon nodded. Together they continued along the path. Gerry bird sang and circled Dragon, while Dragon walked along, taking in all the sights, smells, and sounds of the forest. Then Dragon stopped. A faint trail lead away from the path.


Wondering what could be down this new trail, Dragon stepped off the path. Gerry felt a bit curious too and followed Dragon. Since this was all new to Dragon, Dragon walked very carefully, gently moving tree branches aside. This part of the forest seemed very peaceful. Dragon heard a faint melody in the distance and realized the little trail would bring them right to it.
