I know there are many superstitions, legends, fairy tales etc. around rainbows. Finding a pot of gold at the end is my personal favourite. The myths around this wonderful phenomena are many and all seem to stem from some place of interest in history. The one thing they all have in common though is that a Rainbow means good luck of some description. However, growing up, pointing at a rainbow or a shooting star was considered unlucky!
I have seen three rainbows this week. I saw one early in the morning on Monday, when I was driving my daughter to work and I saw a double rainbow yesterday on my way home from work. It was around 6:45 pm, it was turning dark and raining and the sky was a beautiful colour orange. Everything look liked it was magically glowing. I took a photo with my iPhone as I really wanted to capture the moment, but unfortunately the photos didn’t even come close to doing it justice. Taking the photo through a windscreen didn’t exactly help, but at least I tried. I realize too that I didn’t manage to capture the second rainbow that was there, but they are still beautiful to look at.
As to how the lucky they are, I will let you know next week if anything wonderful happens in my life.
