Kermit the Frog once sang a tune about why there were so many rainbows but if rainbows were free, I believe everyone should have one.

It’s one of the best things on Earth that truly makes me happy and this evening I managed to catch not just one, but two just by the office. (See picture below – if you look closely, there’s one more faint rainbow right behind the first fully formed one.)

A writer once told a reporter when asked ‘Why do rainbows make people happy?’ and the writer replied the following:

The colours of a rainbow are light, fresh and happy and since they are so rare, they elicit a sense of awe and delight in addition to bringing the promise of sunshine with the blue sky usually on the horizon’.

I couldn’t agree more. It’s rarity is what brings a skip and hop to our hearst with its joyous colours. It also makes you realise how it is one of many beautiful phenomenons our Universe presents to us and I’m truly grateful to have seen it today, especially when I’ve been down in the dumps for awhile now.

God seems to have heard me and I’m delighted because not only did he give me 2 rainbows this evening, he also gave me a gorgeous sunset (See below). A 2-in-1 special.

What more could I ask for?

In real life, I am a television writer and producer...er no...scratch...a television director....noo, scratch....a media loser.....wait, that doesn't sound quite insulting enough....... OK, ahem. In real life, I'm an idiot box expert with a penchant for the creative. In short, I'm a loser with no focus or direction in life. I just go where the creative flow takes me. Mostly it takes me to clogged up drains and stinky oceans but it's going.......going.....somewhere. And this blog is an expression of that mindblowing roadblock. Creative frustration is a great motivator and here is a result of that.

  1. Awesome! The song of Kermit, rainbows and sunsets!

    • Yes liana – It’s a song I used to hear in my childhood but yet there’s a tinge to Kermit’s voice when he sings it don’t you think? How’s Bekasi going for ya? Any rainbow moments yet?
