So God said to Noah,
"This is the sign of the
I am making to all life on earth."
[I took this photo when taken to Oxford by my UK/Uganda friend/sister, Jill. We had spent stressful time together in the Soroti, Uganda, situation, having met just days before we went to Soroti. She worked at New Hope Uganda orphanage and I was visiting. After returning to my home in February, '04, she returned to hers in Worcester, UK, in October for a vacation break. I hopped on a plane ASAP to be with her in England, and we had a very special time together. One day, we took a train to Oxford and spent the day "touristing". Of all the many photos I took and historical bits and pieces of that day that were buried in me, this is the highest of all. The day was a mix of light showers, heavy rain, very cloudy, and, sometimes in the midst, a bit sunny. Very weather-active day. To walk across this University campus, glance up, and see the rainbows ... my heart was exploding with joy instantly. So pleased I actually could grab my camera quickly enough and take this. And it was right in time, because rain was pouring again not long after.]
