And while my boys played, another one of the most beautiful and awe inspiring natural phenomenons was taking place-- sundogs. The first time I saw a sundog, I called it a fragment of a rainbow. Over the years, I have viewed these little fragments as a metaphor for life: a reminder that rainbows are always there... we just have to be in the right place to see them.
On Saturday, I saw sundogs everywhere... I even saw a nearly complete halo of color circling the sun... And after I finished my beach clean up, I sat down on a park bench, let my head fall back and the sky smiled at me.... begging me to ask the question: What does it mean???
To which I can only answer:
We live in a great big beautiful world.... and it's worth protecting.
