About the origin of the rainbow
They say a long time ago, there was a man embarrassed by his nudity. One day a powerful lighting bolt fell and the man decided to go ask for its help. After several days of traveling, he arrived and told the lightning bolt what troubled him. The lighting bolt, touched by this, gave the man a gift and told him: “I’ll give you seven colors to paint your body with, they’ll dress you forever, and people will love you and look at you, amazed. That’s how the rainbow, that announces the arrival of the sun after the storm, was created. That’s how the Mazatecos tell it.
“Don’t you get tired of believing, Madame? Don’t you ever want proof?”
Inspired by a scene in ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE, by Anthony Doerr.
“¿No se cansa de creer, Madame? ¿No necesita pruebas a veces?”
Inspirado por una escena en LA LUZ QUE NO PUEDES VER, de Anthony Doerr.
