Moments of Wonder, Part III
Once in while something happens that reminds me that I do in fact have faith in humanity, that people are inherently good not evil, and that misanthropy is only attractive on TV (paging Dr. House.) A rainbow triggered this thought. Not just any rainbow — an insane, turbo-charged, larger than life rainbow that for about 15 minutes last Sunday night transformed a bunch of motorists on the NYS Thruway into awestruck little kids. This picture doesn’t come close to doing it justice, but there it is:
Drivers were peeling off the highway one after another — some to snap pictures, others just to stare. My son was drowsy in the back seat and wasn’t particularly interested but it didn’t matter — the two 40-somethings in the front seat were on cloud nine.
Remember the old “People are Good” ebay ads? No rainbows in that campaign, but I think they were on to something. What do you think?
