Rain, where art thou?

7 07 2018


Sweet Dolly Parton, I have two bones to pick with your lovely quote: “The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”

1) There’s the assumption there that rain is bad or something to be tolerated.

2) Really, you don’t have to have rain to have a rainbow.* Nearly never do we actually get rain with our rainbows in Disappointment Valley.


* Somewhere, there must be rain, given the physics of rainbows. But rain doesn’t have to be falling on you. And, really, we would LOVE to have the rain. The rainbow is just sprinkles to the magic.
