468. A Tasty Treat: a children’s bedtime story and meditation

Dragon enjoyed the popcorn Trenton the Tractor shared, and returns to the farm for some more.

A Tasty Treat Excerpt:

A cool breeze danced around the colorful trees, swirling red, orange, and yellow leaves off their branches. They drifted along, spinning in circles, this way and that, before they finally reached the ground. The breeze continued on, through the enchanted forest, and into Dragon’s cozy cave.

 

Dragon rested, nose out from under the colorful quilt. The cool breeze wafted over and tickled it. Dragon felt the cool air and shook the blanket right off. Awake now, Dragon hopped out of bed. There was so much fun to be had, and it was past time to get started.

 

Dragon picked up the empty corn husk and smiled. Trenton the tractor had offered Dragon more popcorn and so Dragon was going to get some more to share. Leaves flew up into the air as Dragon skipped down the path. Dragon knew the kids would love to watch the popcorn popping, and the animals would love eating the popcorn. Picking up the pace, Dragon hurried down the path to the farm. Then Dragon smiled with an excellent idea. Flying would be faster, so, with a hop, skip and a jump, Dragon opened wings wide and flew up into the sky. As Dragon rose through the trees, the colors of the forest caught Dragon’s eye. Just below the clouds Dragon could see the entire enchanted forest. A sea of red, orange and yellow leaves danced in the fall breeze below. It really was enchanting. Dragon felt grateful for the choice to fly this morning.

464. Tractor Treats: a meditation and story for your bedtime routine

Trenton the Tractor helps Dragon and the kids share their harvest with the animals and the town.

Narrator: Male

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 8:09

Tractor Treats Excerpt:

Sunlight spilled across the fields on the crisp, fall morning. The grass sparkled with frost. Trenton the tractor smiled feeling the sun warm the land. He had had a lot of work to do, lately. And now it was time to enjoy some peace. Trenton looked to see if anyone else was up. He wanted to share the magic with a friend. The little yellow tractor looked to his right. No one was there. Then he looked to the left. Dragon smiled back at the yellow tractor.

 

Trenton jumped, surprised to see Dragon so early in the day.

 

“Isn’t the sunrise beautiful Dragon?” The tractor asked, catching his breath.

 

Dragon nodded and took a deep dragon breath, in and out, (deep breath) enjoying the peace.

 

Joining Dragon in the moment, the little yellow tractor took a deep dragon breath of the fresh morning air, in and out, (deep breath), and listened to the sounds of the morning. Delicate melodies drifted down from the trees. The birds sang a cheerful song to wake everyone up.

 

“So, what brings you out to the farm?” the tractor asked Dragon.
