The End of the Rainbow with Patti LaBelle | #WordlessWednesday

I’m not sure if you can tell from the photo above, but we saw the end of a rainbow! I’ve seen many rainbows, but I’ve never seen the end of one. My guys and I were so excited that while en route to an open house at my son’s school, we pulled over to capture a shot. It was far more brilliant when we first noticed it, but by the time I grabbed my camera out the trunk, the rainbow had begun to fade.

Who knew that the rainbow ended on the university campus at which I work? And there wasn’t even a pot of gold!

Well, at least we can enjoy the amazing vocal range of Patti LaBelle in [not one but] two “out of this world” performances of “Over the Rainbow”–a 1989 performance at the Apollo Theatre in New York City and a 2014 performance at the White House for President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. I can’t choose, so I’m leaving you with both.

Until next time…

    So pleased to see the rainbow ending on your campus! Might not always be a pot of gold, but if it is a hidden treasure of good luck and health, this was the right place to drop it for you..

    Thanks for sharing!!.. always enjoyed Patti LeBelle’s singing!!.. as far as rainbows are concerned, my luck would be about the same as Ed Koch; “If I traveled to the end of the rainbow as Dame Fortune did intend, Murphy would be there to tell me the pot’s at the other end.” Ed Koch 🙂

    Very pretty. Everyone could use a rainbow every now and then. I always seem to miss my shot too when ever I come across a rainbow. Guess I spend to long staring up at it and smiling and then I remember to take a photo and the rainbow is just about gone by that time. Hope all is well in your part of the world, have a beautiful Sunday where ever you and your rainbows are.

    Wow! This is so amazing! I still feel the same excitement when I see a rainbow now as I did when I first saw one as a kid. That proverbial pot of gold has always eluded most of us, but we still go looking for one, don’t we? Thank you for sharing this wonderful picture, Chandra and for joining us.
