There Is Beauty In The World

Today my job took me on the road for the day—out in nature, if you will. I found myself in the middle of a construction site wearing a hard hat, in the middle of a field, walking back and forth over brush and ravines, and in a golf cart rumbling and bouncing around a vast area with overgrown trees and shrubs. When I got back, I realized that my sunglasses were covered in a film of dirt. Upon closer inspection, so was my entire body. I arrived back at my office and looked like I had just been on a safari.


I don’t like to talk about my job on my website, but I guess there’s no harm in telling you that I am the project manager for a company that installs solar panels. I’ve spent many a day getting dirty in the trenches. There’s a lot involved in getting a solar system installed, approved, and eventually turned on, and it’s often unattractive and downright filthy.

But, the result are…NOT.

There are times in which I am very stressed at my job and times in which I am very grimy. But at the end of the day what I do is beautiful. Sometimes I walk onto a site on which we’ve installed solar panels and I am amazed that I get to take part in this. And claim some of its beauty.

Did you Photoshop that rainbow in there?

I didn't take it. I think my supervisor did, and I'm not sure if he photoshopped in the rainbow. I love it, nonetheless.

The rainbow was really there, unbelievable as it may seem. The picture was taken by a former employee.
No photoshopping involved except later to remove the date stamp in the lower right corner of the photo.
