“The picture above represents such an awakening. It was taken on a day that started sunny but soon turned to rain. During the bus ride from Salisbury to Stonehenge there was a downpour. I grumbled to myself and my wife about how the rain would ruin this long awaited trip. As I walked around Stonehenge in the cold and wet mist, I was still disappointed with the day. Suddenly, the rain stopped and the sun momentarily broke through the clouds. For a few brief minutes the rainbow appeared.


This rainy day and, especially, this moment became the highlight of my two week trip to England. It also opened me to a new attitude. Without the rain I would not have found that rainbow. Grumbling about your present reality does not help. You must be open to every moment. You never know what it will bring.”
