There are seven colors in a rainbow, and they are all hidden in a single ray of white light. There is beauty in the simplest things, and so much of it that a blinding flash of light could just as easily be perceived as a glowing rainbow. The beauty lies, however, in us finding it, and so we must continue to look. we must yearn to see more, even if it is just to continue to look simply in appreciation of the beauty of the rang-e-noor, of the colors of the light.

"If a journey is moving from one place to another, it is also all the things in between that happen along the way. It is the belly tingle of the dawn at first summer, the sound of birdsong mingling with traffic, the scent of my lover's skin at the end of the day's journey. Perhaps, it is my own still small voice, my inner burning bush and arc of refuge carrying me above my own emotional depth. Perhaps it is the spaces between, and the containers we all fit into. Coldnoon guides me to all these places with safe hands." - Lisa Thatcher
