Last night I watched The Muppet Movie from 2011. It was a great movie, really brought back some memories from my youth.
I remember seeing the original Muppet Movie back in 1979 at the cinema when it was first released. I saw it as part of a school friends birthday party.
I had such a great time, I love the song “The Rainbow Connection” as much now, as I did back when I was a kid.
It strikes an emotion in me, that I cant quite describe in words, but it is a good feeling.

In particular these words make me emotional
Have you been half asleep
And have you heard voices
I’ve heard them calling my name
Are these the sweet sounds that called
The young sailors
I think they’re one and the same
I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it
There’s something that I’m supposed to be
Someday we’ll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me
Now let me be clear, I do not literally hear voices, but I have always felt even from a young age, an inner calling, that I was meant to do something good for this world. Of course not me alone, but with other people. It is so easy to get trapped in the rat race, with day to day goings on, this song reminds me of my inner purpose, my inner calling of what “I’m supposed to be”
If anybody out there loves this song as much as me, I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
