RAINBOW VISION BOARD FEATURED AT WEST HOLLYWOOD BOOK FAIR Created by best-selling author Joyce Schwarz The Vision Board book

by Joyce Schwarz, author THE VISION BOARD: the secret to an extraordinary life, Harper Collins Publishing, Collins Design, www.ihaveavision.org

GREAT NEWS...the RAINBOW VISION BOARD that The Vision Board Institute (www.visionboardinstitute.com) created at the West Hollywood Book Fair was a big hit.

As many of you know a Vision Board is a visual depiction of what you want to create in your life or community for the future. This time we used Post-IT notes from 3M and created a Rainbow Vision Board with a rainbow of colors ranging from hot pink to green to yellow and blue.

And on each of the Post-It notes, attendees and visitors to the Women's National Book Assn booth where author Joyce Schwarz was invited to sign The Vision Board book had an opportunity to write or draw a picture of their vision on one of the Post-It notes that made up the rainbow. Almost 1000 Post-it notes were used to create the gorgeous rainbow which honored the community of West Hollywood and reflected on the Gay Pride Rainbow Flag which was first launched back in 1976.

Here are some of the pictures of THE RAINBOW VISION BOARD created by THE VISION BOARD author Joyce Schwarz and her associate Carmela Chiaramonte who works with Joyce on The Vision Board Insitute in Marina Del Rey, CA.

 Bookpix3 What is your vision for the future? For one young boy who spoke only Russian but understood some English his vision was of what else -- a new Bike which he drew on the Post-IT NOTE that he then put on THE RAINBOW VISION BOARD created at The West Hollywood Book Fair by best-selling author Joyce Schwarz, The Vision Board: the secret to an extraordinary life.

All of which we envision for the future of all cities around the world. For more information about The Vision Board book by Joyce Schwarz go to the official website at www.ihaveavision.org

One of the visitors to the West Hollywood Book Fair took time from her busy day to add her own VISION on a Post-It note to help create the 6 foot sized Rainbow Vision Board that best-selling author Joyce Schwarz, THE VISION BOARD book and her associate Carmela Chiaramonte from THE VISION BOARD Institute designed from more than 700 Post-Its or sticky notes as they are generically called.

Rainbow Design for the Rainbow Vision Board that best-selling author Joyce Schwarz , The Vision Board book by Harper Collins Publishing, Collins Design will be designing with the assistance of famous authors, VIP's and attendees at the West Hollywood Book Fair, 2009. 

Symbols of the colors in the GAY PRIDE RAINBOW FLAG: according to author Joyce Schwarz research the original gay pride flag was hand-designed and flew in the San Francisco Gay Freedom Day parade on June 25, 1978, The Flag consisted of eight stripes and it's designer assigned specific meaning to each of the colors as follows:

hot pink= sex, red=life, orange= healing, yellow= sunlight, green=nature, turquoise= magic, blue= serenity, violet=spirit.

So how did the flag end up being the colors it is today?When hung vertically from the lamp posts of San Francisco's Market Street, the center stripe was obscured by the post itself. Changing the flag design to one with an even number of stripes was the easiest way to rectify this, so the turquoise stripe was dropped, which resulted in a six stripe version of the flag - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet.

ELLEN's VISION BOARD: Schwarz will also be showing a copy of Ellen DeGeneris Vision Board as seen on her popular TV show, as many attending the WEHO Book Fair knows, Ellen is set to appear on the O Magazine Cover with Oprah this fall and recently was announced to be the new judge on the popular TV show AMERICAN IDOL realizing many of the dreams envisioned on her board.
