Marilyn's rainbow theme: my missing colours

2014.07.26

I can't remember which famous composer it was (Mozart?), but I recall the story that he was such a heavy sleeper as a child that the only way to wake him up was to the play the first seven notes of an octave. The missing note would permeate through his sleeping consciousness and wake him up.

On a totally different scale (hmmm), it bugs me that I haven't provided the other colours in Marilyn's rainbow theme.

English children learn a mnemonic for the colours of the rainbow: "Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain", so I know I missed out on red, orange, yellow, green and blue.

Lazy as I am, I tried to find an image where they are all easily discernible. I had to settle for two.

I hope Marilyn doesn't mind my filling in my own blanks.

marilynx Stéfan - you haven't missed out on any - we started quite by accident with blue followed by indigo - next week will be violet follwed by your suggestion of white - then we'll do red!
Just the way the idea happened to take shape!
So Next Tuesday will be VIOLET!
Have a great weekend - and thanks for the support and participation.
