Like Lemon Drops

When it comes to living with my clinical depression, mornings are usually my most challenging time. I tend to avoid an afternoon siesta because waking up from one is like experiencing morning all over again.

After a few nights of mediocre sleep this week, I couldn't avoid a siesta Friday afternoon.

Less than an hour later, I was having another "morning." As I lay in bed with my eyes closed trying to talk myself into again facing the day, San Geraldo came running in from the terrace.

"I'm sorry to wake you," he rushed, "But you have to see the rainbow."

Thanks to San Geraldo, I was able to wake up where the clouds were far behind me.

AND MAKE MINE A DOUBLE!
BIRDS FLY OVER THE RAINBOW...

When all the world is a hopeless jumble...

  9. WOW! How beautiful is that!?
    I mean beautiful that Jerry wanted you to share this sight with him and that it got you up from another 'morning' in no time!
    Unbelievable paradise in which you live.

      Whenever there's been rain and the sun comes out, even briefly, Jerry immediately starts looking for a rainbow. What a guy!

  12. If that doesn't fix clinical depression I don't know what will. I just saw a double rainbow here not long ago. But My pictures were not that good.

      It may not FIX clinical depression, but it's at least a great Band-Aid.

  15. Well, if that isn't a sign I don't know what is - a brief moment of respite from someone who loves you.

      The way it extended right into the water was so magical. I wish you had swum out to find the pot of gold -- way too far for me to swim.

  20. Physics dictates there is always a double rainbow if you would only look for it.
    I think your partner a wise man indeed to wake you to see this marvelous site.
