Thank You for White Rainbows

Some people think white is the absence of color.

Actually, white reflects all colors— just add light.

I once stood on an ocean cliff in Bodega Bay, California and watched the spray hit the rocks.

The mist created an arc in the sunlight that fragmented into a rainbow.

I stepped to look at the rainbow from a different angle and the whole thing turned into a white arc of ocean spray.

The rainbow was still there, I just didn’t see it from the other angle.

Sometimes I forget to move into a position where I can see the rainbow again, that all I need is a different angle.

This is me, tilting my head and stepping out of my own way today.

Look! Can you see it too?
