Pouring out the back

with a shadow from the sun

Rainbow in the front

It was raining cats and dogs the other day.Β  The drops were so huge I thought the camera might pick them up.Β  So I ran to the back to get the photo of the rain splashing in the pond.Β  Then the sun came out…it was beautiful.Β  Being an eternal rainbow seeker I determined where the rainbow “should” be and ran out the front door (I was not completely appropriately dressed, but rainbows can be fleeting!)

No…no rainbow.Β  Shucks!Β  I went back inside and looked out the back again.Β  It was pouring…and the sun was shining.Β  I said, “There HAS to be a rainbow!”Β  I ran out the front door again, and there she was…in all her glory!Β  I KNEW she had to be there!!

So, the moral to that story is trifold:

1).Β  If you know something in your heart…don’t give up on it

2).Β  It can be raining out the back door…but there’s a rainbow out the front…be grateful for both…for one cannot exist without the other

3).Β  There are sacrifices one must make for the sake of artΒ  (The man who rounded the corner and saw me flying back into my condo clad only in a T-shirt and underwear!!)

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. Beautiful pictures – it is amazing how heavy rain can bring such a beautiful moment in the form of a rainbow! I love your appreciation for nature and the simple things in life. I, too, love the beauty of nature and all things surrounding me (as you can see from my blog in the form of rice fields, flowers, bees etc.) – sometimes it is important to remember to appreciate the little things and the beauty surrounding us!


    1. Yes…Constance…I agree with you 100 percent! ! There is so much beauty that surrounds us. I love nature…it is a beautiful canvas with so many layers of art. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting! I hope you have a beautiful weekend πŸ™‚
