It’s easy to get used to everyday things even if they are beautiful and special. Maui rainbows are plentiful, yet they have a magical quality which keeps the ‘taking for granted’ beast at bay. I remember growing up being really excited by the marvel of a rare rainbow and the thought of seeing the end of one was elusive and well…..impossible. Yet here on Maui they are fat and accessible, to the point that driving home tonight I felt like I drove from the ‘front’ to the ‘back’ of this lovely natural wonder.
I have a rainbow maker in my bathroom. It has a small solar powered cell that’s supposed to turn the colored cogs and wheels to make an indoor rainbow. Great idea- poor execution, the little cell gets all fired up and then just splutters and clicks not turning the modest crystal as was shown on the instructions. No worries, I’ll just keep looking outside my window…….
