End of a rainbow

Have you ever seen the end of a rainbow? I have. It’s nothing dramatic, really. I mention this because today, on our way home after a day of low-level sporting achievement and high-spending IKEA browsing, there were two rainbows gayly arching over our suburb.

Well, we raced onward to find the ends that were closest to our home but you know how it is, the harder you chase the more they seem to be playing peek-a-boo. I was convinced the rainbows were being shifted by the wind and estimated we would find them at the park. But we gave up the ghost because we were tired. Shit for ankles wanted home.

So we didn’t see either end of either rainbow but I can tell you of the time I did see one – it was hanging over an open field (I think that’s where they always are) about two storeys above a hillock, the end kind of faded off in mid air. No, I didn’t dig the ground beneath for gold, because rainbows are a prize in themselves – a silly bit of science magic that makes us smile and point and shout, “Look, a rainbow!” Hello, innocence.

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
