Rainbow

Driving home from skating today, I saw a rainbow. And not just a bow-snippet, like I usually see, but a full honest-to-goodness arc in the sky, with both ends planted firmly in the horizon, and the top majestically soaring above the street, completely visible. It was so beautiful and so fascinating and so distracting, it's a wonder I and all the other drivers on the car-infested road made it anywhere at all in one piece. It made me wish I had my camera, although I realized it was too big to fit in a photo. Even a photo of one leg of it would have been pretty cool. It made me wish I was in a more rural area, where the view was not marred by buildings, wires, and road.
