I saw a  lot of rainbows when I was a kid.
It's really beautiful.   It's seems that I haven't seen it for a long time

Has anyone ever thought that maybe it's because we have all grown older and we think we have more important things to pursue in life that we hardly notice there is indeed a rainbow after the rain? I was walking with my young niece in the park one day and she pointed the rainbow to me. There was a rainbow right in front of me and I had to be told about it by a 4 year old.

I think you're right that many of us stop seeing the wonders around us as we grow older.  Keeping our minds open and curious helps us to feel and look younger than our calendar age.  I'm glad you had the four year old with you to help you see.

Unfortunately, I also think that another reason for seeing fewer rainbows is the air pollution that wraps many cities in gray-brown blankets of smoggy haze.  The most intense rainbows I have seen recently have been in areas with very clean air.
A cynic is a dissapointed idealist.

Hehe, It is not  strange for me to see a rainbow when I am a child and lived in my hometown. But now I have not seen it again for years. It remind me of my beautiful hometown. Not only rainbows but also the colorful clouds in dusk. In that time, I was so tired after hours wroking in the field, but when I saw the clouds when I past by the top of the hill I refreshed.  It is a joy to see the clouds everyday. But till now, I have never seen so beautiful clouds after I left my hometown.
