Monsoon season in Las Vegas is awesome. We've had rain for a couple of days. There's something magical about rain in the desert that's hard to describe to non-desert dwellers. Robyn I & saw a complete rainbow the other evening (and found our pot of gold in the hand of a Mexican sushi chef named Juan at our favorite haunt: I Love Sushi) and a proper downpour and lightning storm that night. The bike ride Saturday was cool and clean--a real rarity in August.
It brings to mind the words of the great Louis Armstrong:
I see trees of green........ red roses too
I see em bloom..... for me and for you
And I think to myself.... what a wonderful world.
I see skies of blue..... clouds of white
Bright blessed days....dark sacred nights
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world.
The colors of a rainbow.....so pretty ..in the sky
Are also on the faces.....of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands.....sayin.. how do you do
They're really sayin......I love you. +’
I hear babies cry...... I watch them grow
They'll learn much more.....than I'll never know
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world
