“Wealth, the beauty of youth and flowers are guests for only a few days. Like the leaves of the water lily, they wither and they fade and finally die.”


Rainbow Aphorisms #126


“We live in a rainbow of chaos.”


“Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.”


Vernal Fall, Yosemite National Park

Got soaked by the spray while ascending the Mist Trail.  The fall received  late-afternoon frontlight. Like the dramatic contrast of the frozen dead tree and the thundering, roaring waterfall. The rainbow symbolizes the continuity of life. Really breathtaking view! You just stand there looking up in the mist and soak in the view and enjoy being part of Nature.
