I can sing a rainbow...


About 13 years ago, I was at one of those stages you go through in life where you're a little lost. I had just broken up with my boyfriend, had quit university, didn't have a job I liked and didn't really know what direction I was heading in. At a bit of a loss, I decided to go to Canada and visit some close family friends. I ended up staying for a couple of months and had a ball.

During my time there one of my good friend, Trina, and I would go on weekend adventures to the Rockies. We saw majestic snow capped mountains, wolves, moose, bears. We ate rich desserts. We drank cocktails next wood fires. We walked on glaciers. We had more fun than I ever could have imagined. The one thing that followed us on our adventures were rainbows, everywhere we went we rainbows appeared through the front windscreen of our car. One day we saw seven. We decided that the rainbow was our good luck sign. After that trip things began to fall into place, life began to have purpose and exciting things started to happen.

Ever since that trip I've always been particularly fond of sighting a rainbow. Especially if I'm feeling a little lost.

Last week the family and I were away on our beach holiday and I had another rainbow experience. Almost everyday while I was away I saw a rainbow. And they were some pretty spectacular ones too. The one pictured above was from my hotel room. I'm hoping that they're signaling some good things coming my way.
