SKY WATCH comes to us via Wiggerâ€™s World, in the United Kingdom.
Hawaii is the Rainbow State
This is the first rainbow I have captured on film. We see rainbows here on an almost daily basis, but usually when we are on the freeway and it just isn’t a convenient place for taking pictures. OC just won’t stop when I ask him to. He is surprisingly obstinate about such things.
I learned about Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, or Brudda Iz, before I moved to Hawaii, but I did not learn of his death until (just before I moved here) much after the fact. Even so, I still grieve for him as do most of the islanders. When Iz died the world lost a beautiful, peaceful soul.
There was a year end celebration at our school the other day. Every grade level performed, including pre-K. Three retiring staff members were honored, and 50 rainbow doves were released at the end of the ceremony. Twenty five were released to the left, 25 were released to the right.
The two groups swirled around and around above the school, much to the joy of the children and much to the nervousness of folks like me who were wishing they hadn’t forgotten their hats.
