walking home from work today in the rain, and turned to find a rainbow behind me. not a glimpse of a rainbow. not a rainbow far off in the distance. the rainbow was splaying itself from horizon to horizon, and was so near that the starting end was in front of a set of trees across the street from the property.
i couldn't help the instinctual reaction in my mind: i wanted to follow it. it was so close. the end of the rainbow is bound to have something beautiful at the end of it... it's kindof nature's neon flashing arrow pointing to something that needs to be revealed... something of importance.
for about ten seconds i contemplated this, before recalling how tired my feet were, and how badly i was hoping to get out of the rain.
this is what i dreaded about adulthood.
