So my previous post was a good ol' crib session about commuting. This is how the travel times for my four days of commuting looked like finally:
As you can see from the chart (yeah, I already know I am vetti, thank you very much ;-)), Friday evening's commute took the longest. And guess what, I was NOT as irritated about it as I was on Wednesday evening. The reason was, just as I was beginning to fume in my driver's seat, I saw something bright in the sky, ahead of me.
It was a rainbow :-)! Thanks to the brief burst of sunlight after the incessant rain, the remaining raindrops had acted like tiny prisms and filled the the sky with a splash of color. And as though to apologize for all the rain, it was not one of those fleeting two/three color streaks that generally pass off for rainbows. Instead the rainbow extended all the way across the sky so that an entire, bright arch was visible. And what's more, I could count all seven colors in it (the famous VIBGYOR sequence). It was an awe-inspiring sight and the magic I felt at that moment has to be experienced to be understood!
This rainbow stayed right until the sun started setting. Even as I inched along in the traffic, somehow seeing the rainbow made all the difference between tearing out my hair in frustration and calmly enjoying my communion with nature. Little nice things can make a whole lot of difference, right :-)?
Fun fact: Did you know that everytime you spot a rainbow, you see your own "personal" rainbow? Each person's view of a rainbow is slightly different from that of another person's because the orientation of the raindrops differs from person to person depending upon the view-point. So a rainbow you see is your very own :-).
