TGIF ...

I received this pic in an email a few ays ago. It explained that this is a fire rainbow - the rarest of all naturally occurring atmospheric phenomena.

It was taken this week on the Idaho/Washington border and the event lasted about 1 hour.

Clouds have to be cirrus, at least 20k feet in the air, with just the right amount of ice crystals and the sun has to hit the clouds at precisely 58 degress.

In the middle of all the chaos that is going on around the world, from wars to fires to earthquakes, etc. this was reassuring for me and a reminder that when people just back off and let the process of life take care of itself, beauty and miracles manifest everywhere.

Shabbat Shalom and a peaceful and joyous weekend to everyone.
