Earlier this week I heard a red-tailed hawk cry, and stepped outside to look up at the sky. I not only saw 2 hawks, but a rainbow around the sun! It was an amazing and spiritual experience, and I had the opportunity to enjoy it for about 2 hours. This is a picture I took, with my hand blocking the bright sun from my eyes:
In researching about this online, I found some interesting insights from this website http://tammyedunn.wordpress.com/2012/03/19/the-sunbow/
including this: "While meteorologists have a physical understanding of the circular rainbow around the sun, wisdom keepers of the Native Americas have complementary spiritual understandings about this dramatic omen around the Sun which is known as the Whirling Rainbow or the Sunbow.
The Sunbow or Whirling Rainbow is considered to be a sign from Creator, marking a time of great change, or transition on the Earth. This full-circle rainbow around the Sun, some elders say, can be understood as a sign to live a life in respect and harmony with all things that make life possible: plants, animals, waters, minerals, fires, winds, and other human beings."What I find particularly interesting is that I'm planning to attend the First Annual Calling All Nations "A Celebration of Water & Belonging" at Sonoma State University tomorrow.

A Big Bodacious Blessed Be!
