No rain....no rainbows.

It’s easy to get used to everyday things even if they are beautiful and special. Maui rainbows are plentiful, yet they have a magical quality which keeps the ‘taking for granted’ beast at bay. I remember growing up being really excited by the marvel of a rare rainbow and the thought of seeing the end of one was elusive and well…..impossible. Yet here on Maui they are fat and accessible, to the point that driving home tonight I felt like I drove from the ‘front’ to the ‘back’ of this lovely natural wonder.
I have a rainbow maker in my bathroom. It has a small solar powered cell that’s supposed to turn the colored cogs and wheels to make an indoor rainbow. Great idea- poor execution, the little cell gets all fired up and then just splutters and clicks not turning the modest crystal as was shown on the instructions. No worries, I’ll just keep looking outside my window…….

What a sad story of the bathroom rainbow that sputtered and died. Perhaps it would perk up with my tears flowing over it? Or, better still maybe it needs someone to leave a crock of gold or a leprachaun to aid its working?

I'm on a "need to know" basis here.
Why am I always the first to write a blog on this site? Has it something to do with "time zones" or am I just pathetic. DO NOT ANSWER THAT ONE SHARON.

Just had a thought, are you driving on the yellow brick road, wearing your blue gingham smock, patting Toto, humming a merry tune with three spare blokes in the back of the truck?

Perhaps your home is the Emerald City? As you already have eyore slippers, maybe you have ruby slippers too?
