Better Than a Rainbow

I have been feeling 'off colour' for a few weeks now.  This culminated with a nasty virus that has been with me for the last few days.  Trying to sleep it off yesterday during the day, I noticed that the light outside the window took on a strange colour.  The Linden tree was illuminated by a beautiful rainbow that branched across the sky in a perfect semi-circle.  Even better -  it was a double rainbow (I presume this is just a reflection of the original) and I have never witnessed this before.

For that brief moment, I felt that there was light at the end of the tunnel or even a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  All too soon the rainbow began to fade and I resumed my place on the sofa with blanket and tissue mountain.

We had a double rainbow here on Saturday, I actually put it on my Instagram ! They are lovely. :)
Hope you're feeling a bit better Simone!

The sun and rain have left their mark,
With a pretty rainbow arc.

You've captured the colours perfectly, Simone. Hope you find your light at the end of the rainbow soon.

I hope you are feeling better, Simone. Nothing makes your mood worse than being ill.

So, glad, though, that you were able to find a light at the end of the tunnel and enjoy the gift of that double rainbow.

I try very hard to repeat a mantra to myself, especially when I least feel like it: I am well, I am strong, I am healthy.
I breathe and meditate on calling all the bits of myself to assemble for the benefit of the whole, recognizing each part of my body as important to every other part, talking to each as a good friend. Then WE set out together as a whole.
I hope you can move beyond feeling poorly and be able to really notice the signposts of encouragement that are all around, such as this fabulous double rainbow which you have once again captured magnificently.
You really do have a gift with a camera.

What a treat to see.
I hope you are feeling much better by now Simone.
