The Wonderful Wizard of Oz – Chapter 2

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz – Chapter 2

Arriving in Oz with a sudden thud Dorothy is awaken by Munchkins. Imagine her surprise, but that is only the first of many surprises that await her in this wonderful land of make believe.

I have often heard people say that they prefer true accounts to fiction and reality to fantasy, but I have always felt those sharp lines are most often only in our minds. Fiction or made up fantasy stories often come closer to the truth than the most times skewed by prejudice eye witness accounts that miss the point if there even was one.

Dorothy’s story though enhanced with all the colorful scenery and characters is a familiar story acted out in countless lives as we discover through our own adventures that there truly is no place like home and that the best friends we make are often those we make as children.

I recently re-watched the movie Gifted and had to smile as the little girl boards the bus for her first day of public school rather reluctantly and her uncle says, “Meet the people that you will be able to borrow money from for the rest of your life.” Friends are so much more than handy branch banks, but thankfully they are sometimes that too. Kindness, understanding, and acceptance are the true currency of friendship and those who have found and keep life long friends are truly wealthy. Yellow brick roads need not be made of gold to be fun to travel with friends. I am sure Toto and Dorothy would agree along with the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion.

The story continues one chapter a day as they follow along on the yellow brick road. Tune in again tomorrow for Chapter Three.
