Why is it that, for most of us, stars and the rainbows create magic ? Is there some mystical connection with "essential matters" that simply seems to happen?
Late yesterday, this rainbow appeared in my back yard after the summer storm. The skies cleared and then, as midnight approached,
the sky became just stars.

I climbed to the top of the ridge, facing north. A million stars called my name. Here in the venerable mountains, almost as old as time itself, I realized that magic was afoot. How easy it was to connect with something much larger than little me.. YES! last night was splendid. Pure Potential was in the air! Something exciting ...on so many levels ...arranged itself somewhere between the coves and rising ridges. Then, in my possibility-thinking, I could find the place simultaneously to start and to leave behind. So this is my legacy. This point through which my spirit flies... A reflection in the stars. A rainbow. An abundance of choices.... places to meet myself and others...heart open... and where you and I can create "safe landings" for generations to come....
Understanding this, you need only to choose the where and when.
But you probably already know this.
A gentle soul once told me, "...there's a pathway to contentment .It is like the rainbows over the ridges.
It's an uncommon force. When you see it you can measure it by your heartbeat,
an all-at-once coming together and letting go."
