Last night the boys and I were sitting at our table playing Scrabble.
The lake was calm and smooth, mirroring the sky.
Then suddenly a dense cloud came in and the lake turned a deep grey.
Just as suddenly as the storm, a rainbow appeared, bright and vibrant.
A second one with fainter hues appeared beside it.
Did you know that when two rainbows appear side by side, the color orders are reversed?
As a child, I always wanted to follow rainbows to see where they ended.
To see if there really was a pot of gold and a sassy leprechaun sitting next to it.
I started to believe that the end just couldn't be found.
It seems that the end of the rainbow is here in Montana, right on our lake.
I said to the boys-
Look, we live at the end of the rainbow.
Then we imagined the masses of gold that must be at the bottom of the lake.
I am sure there is a scientific reason it is ending in our lake.
But, I like to think that it is special just for us.
