between the rain and clouds

Loving our Oregon Coast weather.  The sun came peeking in and out of the clouds today which had me grabbing the camera and heading out to the beach……

IMG_7631I was rewarded with this eye-popping rainbow….. a double one, no less!

IMG_7634“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain!”
― Dolly Parton

IMG_7635“Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.”
― Nora Roberts

as if you were a rainbow
with gold at both ends.”
― AberjhaniThe River of Winged Dreams

IMG_7654“No one can ever make you feel inferior without your permission, Tory. Don’t give it to them. Realize that it’s their own insecurities that make them attack you and others. They’re so unhappy with themselves that the only way they can feel better is by making everyone as unhappy as they are. Don’t let those people steal your day, baby. You hold your head high and know that you have the one thing they can never take away from you. (Theo)
What’s that, Papa? (Tory)
My love. Your mother’s love and the love of your family and true friends. Your own self-respect and sense of purpose. Look at me, Torimou, people laugh at me all the time and say that I’m chasing rainbows. They told George Lucas that he was a fool for making Star Wars – they used to even call it Lucas’s Folly. Did he listen? No. And if he’d listened to them you wouldn’t have had your favorite movie made and think of how many people would never have heard the phrase ‘May the Force be With You.’ (Theo)”

  1. LOVE your double rainbow. I wonder if the outer one is a reflection –refraction?– of the inner one. I mean, in a double, the outer one is always dimmer. Just like a reflection is dimmer.


    • Honestly… I don’t know all that much about rainbows (except that they’re beautiful). What fun -you’re digging into the way back times here! Thanks for the visit and the comment! It’s appreciated.


  2. Love the rainbows! Reminds me of just the other day here in western Washington…I saw a rainbow as I was driving along. We have had so much rain and storms. I was so amazed when I saw the rainbow. Hadn’t seen one in months it seems. The rainbow gives us hope and promise of better days to come!
