“Why are there so many Songs about rainbows?

And what’s on the other side

Rainbows have visions

And only illusions

Rainbows have nothing to hide

So we’ve been told

And some choose to believe it

I know they’re wrong wait and see

Someday we’ll find it

The rainbow connection

The lovers, the dreamers and me”

Lyrics by Jim Henson- favored artist Kermit the Frog
Rainbows and Frogs- “look, look, look to the rainbow, follow the fellow who follows his dream.”

The fascination of the colors, shape and the promise bring a trilogy offering endless wonderment. Dorothy searched for her happiness “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” She learned that after her laborious travels, the click of the shoes bringing her “Home” where Auntie Em’s smile brought her in was her deal.

So you gamble at the track to win, place or show. Aren’t placing and showing winning? First place is optimum but just getting out of the gate, playing your own game and reaching for the Holy Grail is what winning is all about. Give it your all and let the pieces fall where they may. Don’t get locked out of the contest even if there are just a few places left. Make certain you buy the conceptual lottery ticket. “You gotta be in it to win it.”

Don’t judge a situation you’ve never been in. My friend’s Love their dogs. Like in OMG- DOG! Love is love. Friend’s adopted a baby at birth. They threw the word adopted away as it had no “H” for heart in it. When you have grandchildren that had nothing to do with biology and everything to do with “Everything,”- make them yours in heart, body and soul. Believe me they know who loves them- it’s Big, Huge!

Bet to win, place or show on the things you have that you can only imagine you would find on the other side of the rainbow. Winning is winning. Next chapters come very quickly in our book of life. Learn to recognize the song of the male frog- a grunt, a croak in his reaching out to mate. Don’t loose sight of the opportunity in ur path.

Make hay from the scarecrows stuffing. Join the parade as it’s marching by. And– when the music stops find that seat- I see it over there waiting for you.
