BF QOD: The Tao of Dolly and “rainy” days

BF QOD: The Tao of Dolly

"The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain." (Dolly Parton)

This quote from Dolly always makes me smile.

“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” (Dolly Parton)

Especially after a doozy of a day like yesterday. It, metaphorically, started out sunny and then got rainy, rainy, rainy.

So in moments like that, I turn to Dolly.

She’s so smart. So talented. So kind. I aspire to be more like Dolly every day.

My favorite thing I ever heard about Dolly was on a set in Austin. Someone was complaining about how hot it was and they retold the story of when Dolly was shooting a film and someone was similarly complaining about the weather/long hours/etc. She said, like she didn’t hear their complaints: “I’m just so lucky to be here on this movie set. Just a little girl from Tennessee.”

Needless to say, it shut the complainer up and set a very happy vibe for that set.

Thanks Dolly for your spirit and, today, for your words.
