Rainbow obsession...

Rate this Entry
As some may know I have a slight addiction to anything that is coloured in rainbows, whether it be striped, dotty, blended together like an oil slick if a rainbow is around you can guarentee that my gaze will be drawn to it. My collection of rainbow coloured items used to be massive but over the years I've not been able to buy anything new to feed my obsession. Until today that was, when walking around my local Lidl I came across this beauty...


And I just knew that I had to have it, so now it graces my front room windows making me smile each time I look at it.

Why do rainbow things make us happy? I wonder...

    I love rainbows too H. I don’t have a collection
    but I have several items including a Lotus
    flower tattoo with an ancient IChing symbol
    in the center of my inner wrist.
    I’ll have to open a thread in Visual Arts for
    body art to show you.

    Definately I would love to see it, I have a lily on my shoulder that has different coloured dots to tie rainbows into it and when i have the money I want some more tattoos each design has rainbows incorperated into them. I have a rainbow hat that I've owned for over ten years, jackets, shoes, earings, jackets, bags, dresses with bright colours . If I see something in rainbow colours I want to own it lol. I have my eye on two teddy bears at work that I want and on some rainbow kitchen ware when I can afford it. They just cheer me up and brighten everything.

    Me in some of my rainbow glory...

    My kitchen is very colorful. Except for a
    couple of wooden spoons my utensils
    and kitchen towels are different colors
    with a rainbow in mind. It brightens the
    room and adds a cheeriness.
    The weather here has been worth a
    Clydesdales weight in gold....

    Nah I'd just get a cheaper car and pay for the holographic powder car paint that thurns it into a shiny rainbw car. I'm that obssed but thanks for sharing the image.

    Rainbow colours have been the pride symbol for many years but that's because they are awesome, even if they are a girly thing.

    Dear bd,
    The bottom of the door looks blue-ish
    green wasn’t sure if it was a reflection
    of the street. Cool car.

    Dear E,
    I can’t think of many, but Peter Max
    used a lot of rainbow inspired color
    Also, this might be stretch, but the
    Sargent Peppers album cover, I think
    was rainbow inspired.
    The rainbow colors in the US are also
    a pride symbol...it’ funny, the lesbians
    think I’m gay because of my tattoo,
    and a while ago I had a conversation
    with a couple of lesbian co-workers
    regarding being labeled for liking and
    having rainbows.

    One other interesting fact, Rev. Jesse
    Jackson was very involved with the Rainbow
    Coalition here in Chicago back in the late
    60’s, the idea of including everyone of
    every color.

    Started reading James Baldwin's The Fire Next Time an after the page with a dedication is a quote.

    God gave Noah the rainbow sign,No more warter,the fire next time!....

    What's that mean..?

    Dear E,
    Thanks for the reminder....
    If you believe the words of the bible,
    we’re closer to that pridiction than ever
    I’d rather have water again or collide
    with a giant meteor with instant death
    If you had a choice as to how much
    of mankind would be destroyed and to
    begin again....the matrix...what would
    you say?

    Humanity has never lived in a peaceful world and never will...if the crusades had the bomb it would have been game over...once humans conquer the fear of death and destruction they will probably become obsessed with the destructive capabilities of technology... it's all part of the human DNA....is there a rainbow for humanity..no but inderviduals can always find one....
