One morning last week I had a realization about a long-standing story I sometimes live about not being a good-enough sister or friend or neighbor. I took out my notebook and made a simple list of related stories that came to mind.

I burned the list. The paper in that particular notebook must have a special coating.
On top of that, it was a windy day. I used up half a book of matches failing to burn the list on our burn pile. Finally I got a ceramic bowl and found a place by the front door relatively sheltered from the wind.
It still took at lot of matches, but that sucker is burned. In the movie, after the curtain is pulled back, the phony wizard is able to endow each of the characters with his or her wish. How does a phony wizard pull that off? He does it by revealing to each of them that they already had what they sought. The Scarecrow may have thought that brains lived in the diploma, which the Wizard granted him, but we know that his intelligence was there all along. And the courage of the beloved Cowardly Lion shone through repeatedly as he shivered and shook, but stayed the course in spite of his fears.
Clearly his courage was not the result of receiving a medal. Dorothy wanted to go home. Home, a place that lived right there inside of her. You could say that the magic of the Wizard was to show each person that they themselves were the power behind the illusions they had been living, and that they had equal power to see through those illusions and come home to their wholeness and wellbeing.
We have that same magic at our disposal. From a retired cop I liked it it brought me back to all those situations that are true and unbelievable. Hard to believe some and the writer only touched the tip of the iceberg. Thank you and good luck, JH.
