Patricia A. Oplinger, Scattered Rainbows (Volume II), CarpeTempe, 2008
"As a followup to In thePlayhouse of My Mind, my artist collaborator, Carol L. Funke, and I share how we manage to hurdle roadblocks and weather life's sudden showers by focusing on the scattered rainbows we meet along the way."
From the Prologue: "If you walk in the mist you get wet and you must expect mud. No one escapes that reality. But you can choose to filter the spray, the dew, the fog and the ice of life. Every path has puddles. Every stream has ripples. And every rainbow has form. We choose to splash in the puddles, float on the ripples,and capture the rarified shapes of our scattered rainbows."
