A DOSE OF HOPE: The Rainbow Connection
[A DOSE OF HOPE]:
Rainbows may be just beautiful illusions, but the hope they represent is very real….
While children around the world have been drawing rainbows during the Corona crisis, we’ve been filming real rainbows here at the beach in California.
Here’s 1 minute of hope…
Take in these Rainbows for a moment of Reflection.
Gaze at Mother Nature’s multi-colored beauty.
We can always reach out – and be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud. And appreciate a moment of wonder in own dark times too.
Pass it on… and let’s spread hope.
Thanks to all the first responders and essential workers for their remarkable courage and hard work to look after us all…
And thanks to all the children who remind us to hold on to hope, (and to chase the rainbow!).

[VIDEO]:The Fountain of Youth
THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH –

He decided to slow down life and find more work/ life balance. And as a result, has made many new discoveries, enhanced his relationships, and found more happiness.
Maybe there really is a fountain of youth, and what a beautiful place to hear about it; at the magical old ‘Chalice Well‘ in Glastonbury, England…

Sweet Freedom: A Joy Ride for you with Dolphins
Here’s 2 minutes of Calm and sweet freedom for you… being swept along with Dolphins.
Ever-smiling Dolphins represent peace, harmony… and playfulness!
Notice how they swim in Pods. They are social creatures, and Bottle Nose dolphins like these are even known to be empathetic; cooperating together to rescue the sick. They have much to teach us.
This is raw, uncut footage from the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia, kept long to really give you a feel for the experience.
