He thought about it for a moment and then said:
“An incredibly rare experiences: a rainbow seen during a walk in a forest, you know… something that only we have seen together. I have had one or two such moments in my life and treasure them.”
When I went to visit my father in Santa Fe last week, we went for a walk before dinner, and the sunset was absolutely spectacular. We have never been as close as I would have liked, but I was so moved by the beauty of the sky that I told him what my friend had said.
To my complete surprise, my father tucked my hand under his arm, gave me a warm smile and said, “Yes, we are having one of those incredibly rare experiences.”
I was completed delighted and will treasure that experience for the rest of my life.
What are some of your favorite rare experiences? Have you thought of including them in your story?
