THE RAINBOW TRAIN
By Jen at the Den on June 18, 2011
I just got home from Fiddle camp....a place that is so very special to my family in the middle of the mountains. I was unplugged for 2 entire weeks, except once to check my email and once when I drove 10 miles down the road to receive cell service. It made me realize once again the importance of simple pleasures, of perseverance and a positive attitude. The first week camp flooded and many of the campers on one side of the camp had to be placed in a hotel down the road. It didn't dampen anyone's spirit, though, and when the news got wind, it was shown on TV. The music never stopped, nor did the smiles or friendships!
I wrote a little piece of music last year about a rainbow. This year I saw the most spectacular rainbow as well after a brutally cold day. I played "OVER THE RAINBOW".
Here is an excerpt from my song on Youtube, and my experience I talk about on my weekly Mamalode post. Enjoy!
My life is kind of like that rainbow. When I focus on only the rain, I feel pissed. But I cannot deny the fact that the rain is what makes the most beautiful rainbows, teaches me the most important lessons, and keeps me focused on the things in life that matter.
