Nanty Glo/Mundys Corner is an exit off route 22 in Pennsylvania.

We were driving back from Pittsburgh Monday. Alice, my stepdaughter, just graduated from Pitt and her master’s program.

We climbed hundreds of stairs through the streets of Pittsburgh. We surprised Vance Gilbert a house concert he gave in Squirrel Hill

On our way home Monday evening we witnessed a dramatic vista that inspired a beginning:

I saw the birthplace of rainbows
‘Gainst a marble grey cloudy view
With the sun blazing down through a hole
In a patchwork sky
Miles from Nanty Glo/Mundys Corner
Through the west Pennsylvania hills
Stealing my way ‘gainst this ache
From leaving you

We’ll see where this rainbow leads.
