you see more rainbows in kansas than in the other places i've lived. i remember once coming out of a movie in severna park or glen burnie, some town/suburb south of baltimore, and seeing a big ol' rainbow, a full one, arching all the way across the road. i knew it had been years since the last one i'd seen; that was when i first realized they'd been missing. this is one way the trees on the Sho' weren't so great.
today's rainbow, and the weird sunshine with all the rainwater on ice and snow, put it in my head to go down to the river. ducks and geese were yakking it up, avoiding chunks of floating ice. in places there was steam coming off the water. the clouds came back in variously briskly moving layers, and it was just all wonderfully lively & weird.
then i went for a little drive, and then i got texted a dinner invite as i stood in meier's, having just found the bottle brush i'd been looking for. i bought several other cleaning things & a bottle of wine & ran home for a shower before a lovely lazy meal with some of my favorite kind of talk.
i'm gonna miss that girl when she leaves town.
