Playground rainbow

Yesterday afternoon was Grace’s first soccer practice of the season.  Whit and I dropped her off and headed back to the car through the playground by the field.  I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw this rainbow shimmering through the water from the fountain.  And I thought: isn’t this what I want to do, more than anything, on this blog, in my life?  See the rainbow on the playground, the magic in the mess, the glory in the grubbiness.  Yes.  Yes it is.

    Perfect. The ‘magic in the mess’ is really the heart of the whole thing, isn’t it?

    “the magic in the mess” — YES! A perfect phrasing. Beautiful.
