I don’t know what else I really want to say beyond this: there was a rainbow over the orchards as I pulled out of the church parking lot yesterday. A giant rainbow.
I watched my rear-view mirror, making sure no one was pulling up behind me in the turn lane.
And I sat there for a few moments and watched the rainbow.
I could see both ends of the rainbow planting itself somewhere. There was that nostalgic pull to try to find the end of it– wouldn’t it be cool if I chased this rainbow down and stood in the middle of it wherever it ends? And I liked that image– of me standing in middle of some orchard, surrounded in rainbow light and raindrops.
Then a car pulled up and I left the rainbow behind me. I’ll take wonder and whimsy wherever I can get it.
