#6 – my african Rainbow

There’s something magical about rainbows.Wikipedia defines a rainbow as a meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. This definition does not do justice to what I saw this afternoon. Following late afternoon rain I looked up to see the most perfect rainbow I’ve seen in recent times.

I do recall growing up that this was a common phenomenon. In more recent years, I have very few memories of witnessing such a beautiful natural spectacle. I think a lot of their scarcity is as a result of me having an office from which I am meant to add value to the world economy. From time to time we get to look outside our modest office windows in bust metropolis. If you are lucky you can see beyond 100m. The outside has become somewhat of a luxury. As kids, being outside is all we knew. Under those circumstances, coming across a rainbow was an inevitable certainty.

Happiness is when you stumble across the most beautiful rainbow as a timely reminder of the beauty and colorfulness of life.
