Because everyone has the right to be truly free and happy
“All the colours of the world are in me”
While I was writing the IT Guy ( link the-it-guy) I began lamenting about how our world and workplaces had become devoid of colour. Then I happened across the song Colors (by Kira Willey) while doing a kids yoga class. My daughter really loved it, and I put it on my ipod to add a little brightness to my day too.
One day, I was listening to it while I was travelling to work on the bus, and I decided to play a little game – let’s see if I can find the colours as they are mentioned in the song. Initially I was sceptical, but sure enough, as she sang green we travelled past a big beautiful gum tree, looking up I found a grey plastic roof, as she said red I noticed a lady sitting next to me with a red shirt on, and then right outside was a big beautiful blue sky.
I have played this game several times now in lots of different places, and have not missed a colour yet! The most remarkable was when I was standing on an intersection. Purple came up as the next colour and I thought to myself that you never see purple cars so this might be the first colour I miss. But you wouldn’t believe it, just then through the lights came a bright purple ute with the music blaring. Coincidence? Synchronicity? Regardless, playing the colour game continually gives me confidence in a world of bright beautiful colour. It has also helped me realise that it was not that the world was devoid of colour, it’s just that I wasn’t looking for it!
I hope you might have some time to download the song play the colour game too. I hope it might bring a bright rainbow to those days that just feel black and grey!
