Searching for Rainbows

Cape Cod Weather Today: Rainy, 47 degrees, chance of thunderstorms through Friday. Still. Again. What's with the rain? Did someone forget it's May already? We had all this in April....

Given the rainy weather, I was searching through my photo albums for a good rainbow picture. I found this shot from the Harwich Junior Theatre instead.

The stairs which lead up to the rehearsal rooms and changing rooms are painted in rainbow hues, with the words to the song "Rainbow Connection" painted on the faces in gold.

The theatre has been around for a long time - I doubt that many of the kids currently taking classes in the building have even seen The Muppet Movie, but I get a chill each time I walk up the stairs and read the words.

You can't help but read the words as you climb. And hear Kermit in your head...

"Why are there so many songs about
And what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions
But only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
It's something that I'm s'posed to be
Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The Lovers, the Dreamers,
And Me."

I know it's been a dreary spring in many parts of the country, including Cape Cod. Keep looking for the rainbows. Here's wishing that there's a Rainbow Connection out there for each of us.

  1. This does not surprise me! I remember what a big Muppet fan you were (and still are?)!
