The name of this blog, Rainbow Juice, is intentional.
The rainbow signifies unity from diversity. It is holistic. The arch suggests the idea of looking at the over-arching concepts: the big picture. To create a rainbow requires air, fire (the sun) and water (raindrops) and us to see it from the earth.
Juice suggests an extract; hence rainbow juice is extracting the elements from the rainbow, translating them and making them accessible to us. Juice also refreshes us and here it symbolises our nutritional quest for understanding, compassion and enlightenment.

The Spirit Level documentary

A couple of times on this site I have made mention of the book “The Spirit Level”1 and also the upcoming film documentary based on the book.

The content of both the book and the documentary should be something that every worker in the community development and social justice fields should be considering.

The film is well on it’s way towards being completed.  A trailer for the film has recently been published.  Here is a link to that trailer.  Please watch it and give it serious thought.
