Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:41

Narrator: Female

Tricycle Trade Excerpt:

The little red tricycle slept peacefully in the garage.  Slivers of sunshine snuck through the cracks of the large door.  Then the door rumbled and rose.  Trudy the tricycle relaxed in the warmth of the sunlight.   Then something rolled past her.  It was a bicycle, with a bright purple bow on it, looking a little bit nervous.  The little tricycle remembered how she felt when she first arrived in the garage, and so she decided to be the first to welcome the bicycle.

“Hi! I’m Trudy.”  She said.

“I’m Bing. Is this your garage?”  The bicycle said.

“Oh, no. I just park here.  I help the little girl roll down the driveway safely.  Judging from that bow on your handlebars, I’m sure we’ll find out who you will be helping pretty soon.

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