"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Perfect Moment Monday: the rainbow

Two Fridays ago, on May 1st, Joey's school had their Spring Fling. They had all kinds of silly games, a dunking booth, bounce castles, and food. Of course, Joey extracted a promise from me that we would go. The announcement was made that the Spring Fling was to go on no matter what the weather. And, the weather cooperated and provided a little bit of all weather...downpours, sprinkles, and even sunshine. We got soaking wet, played a few games, and generally had a wonderful time. And, then I turned around and saw this...
I have seen so many beautiful rainbows in my life but this one capped a wonderful afternoon with two out of my three boys. And, this one occurred when I actually had my camera with me. A perfect moment indeed.

Once, in Hawaii, I drove through the end of one. I ddn't even know that was possible, though it stands to reason they must end somewhere. It was eery and gorgeous, but sadly, no leperchauns. Am still a bit put out by that.
