It’s a rainy day here in Chicago. I like rain. I like the sound of it. I like the hunkering-down effect of it. And I like the accessories that go with it… like umbrellas and rainbows.

And that got me thinking about the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Imagine that you indeed followed the rainbow alllllllllll the way along, all the way to the end where that proverbial overflowing pot resides. What would be in that pot that would make you squeal with delight and giddily jump up and down? Would it be gold? Or would it be something else? I’d be psyched to find a pot overflowing with really cool shoes Or a pot of airline vouchers for travel anywhere in the world. Or a pot of cheese fondue. Or heck, even just a pot of coffee.

Let’s hear what’s in your fantasy pot. (over yonder in the comment section). Depending on how this mini-mission plays out, I may try to find a way to illustrate your responses and present it to you all later.
