Sleepy Sundays: Unity

Unity © 2017 Snapping Turtle Arts & Publishing | cardcastlesinthesky.com
We had a busy week here at home and a crazier few weeks in the nation and world as a whole. Aside from my personal life, I’m managing and still enjoying extra time with my son for the summer.

Despite a positive outlook on my home and work life for now, due to the major events going on in the world you could feel tension in the air.

It all came to a halt briefly after a storm yesterday afternoon when my son shouted out,

“The sky is yellow, Mom!!”

He was so excited. Beyond elated. He rushed me to the window. We had just had a very violent thunderstorm. We’ve been getting a lot of them in my area this summer. Though this one particularly unique. Not only did the sky turn yellow after it stopped, due to the sun setting and the high humidity, but in almost a perfect dome-like shape there stood a spectacular double (almost triple, but the last one was faded) rainbow.

We ran outside in the remainder of the drizzle to snap a few photos. What we soon saw was a short moment that brought everyone out of there houses with smiles. For just a few minutes, it brought the neighborhood out. Together. Smiling. It was a warm feeling that gave us hope. Hope despite troubling times. Though it was small and in a no way a sign that all horrible things will simply fade away, it was something special, still.

I blended the photos into some digital templates like the one you see here. I plan on using them for greeting cards.

Our local news caught a gorgeous shot of this same rainbow outside of their studio as well.

 

What brings you together with others?

Have a peaceful Sunday!

    1. I’ve been closed in & hesitant to trust most of my life because of people like that, friend.
      They’re predators.
      But if there’s one thing I realized in this life, it’s that – that doesn’t make us prey.
      Speak out when you see/hear someone being treated unfairly. But I know you, TD & I know you will.

      I hate to sound so redundant at this point – but we really need to take care of one another! ❤
