Sometimes things just line up perfectly.
I was walking up an unending hill yesterday, talking to myself about the plans for my future (actually interviewing myself about my kids book). It felt good to be somewhere very very green, as Bequia was so very brown and dry. Roxy, my dog, was happy to be out, and although I had made one “hail mary” call to a local girlfriend to join me last minute, I actually was appreciative of the solitude.
Of course, if anyone could see me, I looked like a lunatic talking to myself.
So there I was, huffing and puffing up the hill, all the way to the top, where I get a great view of my town and beyond. Beautiful. Satisfying. I had said all the things I wanted to say to myself. But it wasn’t until I turned around, started back down, and rounded a corner that I was met, full face on with the most glorious CLOSE and PERFECT end-to-end rainbow I think I’ve ever seen.
It was a big ‘ol cosmic HELL YA SISTER! KEEP ON TRUCKIN’.
At least, that’s how I interpreted it.
And I even laughed out loud. Because it was that perfect. And I stayed there looking at this thing of beauty even after it started to rain, pretty hard on me. Because, you know, when the cosmos is talking, you can’t start walking.
Sunshine and rain, that’s all we need.
