spent some time recently considering what makes things special

an event, a workplace, a person, a view…

and how do we make them special… 

is it being in the right place at the right time… is it an aura they produce… is it just being open to hear/see/feel…

last night I noticed a sundog in the sky which is very odd at this time of the year… usually they are visible when it is very cold, but after a little research I discovered this:

Sundogs can and do occur worldwide and during all seasons, but they are most common during winter months when the sun is low in the sky and ice crystals are more common. All that’s needed for a sun dog to form are cirrus or cirrostratus clouds. Only these clouds are cold enough to be made of the plate-shaped ice crystals we mentioned above. The sun dog occurs when sunlight is refracted off of these crystals…

it is just over the tree canopy to the left of the sun in this picture… 

what made me look out the window at just that moment… and actually see the tiny version of a rainbow…

chance?
