Totally Double Rainbow”

A Double Rainbow touches down on Calico Creek

After a particularly stressful night’s sleep last week, I woke up still worrying about the personal issues at hand. I made my way to the kitchen, poured a cup of coffee and headed for the back porch to contemplate possible solutions to the issues causing the concern. As I got to the glass pane door that leads to the porch overlooking the Calico Creek I noticed a glimmer of light and color to the left. I was greeted by an fantastic display of nature, the double rainbow.

As I gazed at the wonder, I sipped my coffee and let a strange sense of well being overtake me. I took this phenomenom as a personal gift, I felt as if the rainbow was there as a sign for me. While things have not magically changed, solutions are coming into view and the problems should subside soon.

Are the two events related and did the rainbow take place as sign from the universe for me? Probably not, and I bet that double rainbow made a lot of people in Morehead feel better that morning. It is things like double rainbows,  beautiful sunrises and sunsets, full moons, the horizon on the sea or mountains in the distance that remind us that we are a very small part of something big and wonderful. When we witness such special displays of nature, if we take a minute to appreciate them we might put the minute stresses of life that strangle our personal happiness into perspective.

I wish a day full of double rainbows for you tomorrow.
