ON THE BACK BURNER

May 21

I really thought that I would see a rainbow the other day on the way to Temple. At that time of day, on that particular street, I sometimes do see a rainbow. I didn't on this drive. The sky was grey, the street was grey. My thoughts were grey. Today is bright and sunny. Our afternoon clouds haven't built up yet. I put a lot of faith in rainbows and in Cardinals. Today, as I was thinking about a friend, I saw our Cardinal. I think he is our outside pet. I look for him every morning. How he materialized just as I was thinking about my friend ,makes me remember that there are no coincidence ,but I can use my imagination and manufacture one. I can romanize when I see a rainbow or this beautiful red cardinal. I can make believe that the rainbow has that pot of gold at the other end and it is passing right over our house. Or I can believe that good things will happen because I see that Cardinal. Simple, naive, who cares. It makes me happy. And I like happy. You be happy ,too.
