Rainbow/Sunset Double Feature!

I stepped out my front door this evening to see this going down to my right:


And this blowing my mind to the left:


I took turns staring at each, and watched the rainbow get more vivid as it got a little darker:


And the Sunset start to give extra sparkle to the sky for you to remember it by:


I came inside after both directions had fully faded away, and went back to the email stuff I was doing, feeling blessed that I can be moved so deeply by just looking up.

Facebook was blowing up with people all over Los Angeles typing DOUBLE RAINBOW!!!! in their status boxes, and I felt blessed anew that EVERYONE can still get excited over such pure and natural beauty as rainbows and sunsets. No politics involved, no family drama, no selfishness involved whatsoever, as it's free and we all share in it.

Just this morning, I sang quoted Bob Marley from "Sun Is Shining" to illustrate how I want to try and be in life, "I'm a rainbow too!" Well, now it's just straight fitting to quote him again, in light of the dazzling we were all just subjected to over here, at the end of the rainbow, at the end of the country ...

When the morning gathers the rainbow
Want you to know I'm a rainbow too

So, to the rescue here I am

Want you to know just if you can

Where I stand, know, know, know, know, know


We'll lift our heads and give Jah praises!


Oh, yes we will. Praise Jah!!


*I promise you that if I was a photographer, these dang photos would make you cry. As ever, real life is better.
