A few minutes ago, I took a break from work to go fill the bird feeders. The weather has turned breezy. Clouds are skittering across the sky, making shadow art on the ground that is greening up already. A few raindrops fell out of nowhere on to my head.
The little nuthatches who make a home in the pine tree behind our house sounded as if they were laughing. I looked up, wondering if those raindrops were actually little jokes dropped from birds. After I did it I thought that maybe looking up wasn't the smartest thing to do.
But then, if I hadn't looked up, I wouldn't have seen the rainbow. Or thought of this song.....
Israel Kamakawiwo'Ole. Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
