Aggressively, I pulled over to the side of road like a cop on Cops and jettisoned out of my car like it was about to explode – super nova style.
Everything was cool though. It’s just that I saw a rainbow that seemed CGI. Completely computerized. Luminous, crisp and perfect.
And this is right around the time you ask, “Gabe, are you really taking up my time to talk about a goddamn rainbow?!”
Well, yes and no.
I wouldn’t have written a word about if I hadn’t received multiple texts from a few friends as I clicked pics of the overhead magnificence.
A few lovely people in my life wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing out on such a transcendent site. Because they know that’s what I’m all about – noticing beauty in between the shit.
And just the fact that a few people were looking up at the same time, in awe, and thought to share it with me and god knows who else, almost moved me to tears.
It’s just too damn beautiful.
Especially with the new Paul Simon album in my headphones as I write this.
He just sang, “I trade my tears to ask The Lord for proof of love. If only for the consolation of gazing at the stars above…I ask The Lord for proof of love. Love is all I seek. Love is all I seek.”
Prayer answered. Right in those texts.
And I am so very grateful for them.
In this moment, all I am is gratefulness.
thank you, so much, for sharing this moment with me,
