A Legacy. A Reflection

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with REAL ESTATE RESOURCES & NETWORK 209970

summer rainbow over ashevile, n.c.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."

There is nothing like walking with your dogs in nature to find that "quiet space" of possibiity! I am lucky to have two dogs who remind me of that every day.

This may be your first comment since you joined Active Rain. You better than most understand the gifts nature provides. Having been a guide in the Alaskan wilderness, you have so much to bring to our discussions...and a very special perspective from which we can all benefit.

When you commented..."No rain, No rainbows. . .' it reminded me of "no pain, no gain. . .' and then I thought of the work we do in our profession and felt thisthe perfect example of the two sayings.

I used my digital camera to get the photo of the rainbow. My son happened to be-visiting me at the time. He uses a film camera. I can hardly wait to see how his photos turn out.
