Quick, call a therapist

During 2 hour drive back from grueling meeting, listening to songs from the 70's on XM radio ... and one hadn't thought about in really long time came on ... Kermit the Frog (pic) singing "The Rainbow Connection". Went from sniffles to full blown giant tears after these first lines ...

"Why are there so many Songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side
Rainbows are visions
They're only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told and some choose to
Believe it
But I know they're wrong wait and see

Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me"

Entire song is one big metaphor for association management in my opinion. I don't know if possible to do this job without being a big dreamer, looking for the other dreamers, and holding out hope for any number of things. Always trying to get to other side of some rainbow. Next verses seem process of getting there ... good and bad. Or maybe due to tone of angry people at meeting, I was welcoming hearing such friendly voice in a song. Should I be looking to a pretend frog for friendliness and motivation? Quick, call a therapist.

Here's Kermit and song on YouTube.
