- Whatabouts (noun): the matters which one is occupied with
So a couple of nights ago, we were visited by a quick rain spell – or as they call it here in Louisiana – a SQUALL (I don’t know about you, but I giggle every time I hear the word!) I’ve gotten so accustomed to the 70* weather that I was a bit sad when the cloud cover took over. But after a quick 20 minutes, I noticed the clouds starting to pull away, so I peeked out the blinds to see if the rain had stopped, and saw a RAINBOW! It’s the small things that make me smile!
Scientists claim that rainbows are due to the refraction of light with a drop of water acting as a prism … an easily explained phenomena. While the rational side of me knows that’s true, my creative spirit balks at the stark explanation. Rainbows are magical. Dorothy flew over the rainbow and landed in the world of Oz…and Leprechauns guard the pot of gold at its base… and when a traveler spots a rainbow, they know they will reach their destination safely. I believe that seeing a rainbow lifts the spirit…it means the storm is passing…the sun will shine again.
I hope these bright images bring a smile to your face as they did to mine…
What is your favorite color of the rainbow?
