ozz... is a zoo

alternative titles:  

"sometimes, reality is backwards"
(or)

"we're off to see the wizard"

in the move-ie "the wizard of oz"...

1. a young person has trouble communicating with her family and friends, and...
2. she wishes for another world, somewhere "over the rainbow" where everything is right, and...
3. she meets a wizard (one who uses a number of methods to 'see' the unseen), and...
4. she falls into a dream, and man-i-fests into a different world, and...
5. she enters that new world: one of color, and song, and multiple paths, and...
6. she learns about that world of good and evil, and...
7. she hopes to meet a higher being, a master... a wizard who can accomplish miraculous feats, and...
8. she meets a very smart (yet brainless) scarecrow, and...
9. she meets a very loving (yet heartless) tin man, and...
10. she meets a very brave (yet fearful) lion, and...

to be continued...   

the question is: "is the wizard a wizard who will serve?"  
in other words: can this higher being (who we've never seen) really answer our prayers?

"we're off to see the wizard" 

1. of course, on course, in process, there are hazards along the way.
2. it would be no fun to have every desire answered immediately, always.
3. there's an illusion of evil, or, the opposite of Love: a wicked witch who makes the journey difficult.  (but is she really real?  ...is the journey really that much of a challenge?)

to be continued... 

1. the trail of pleasure (and poppies) can (momentarily) interrupt the journey.

to be continued...

1. a horse of a different color is a moment away.
2. wizards can be asses.
3. along the journey, one might face his/her darkest demons.
4. demons can be overcome.
 
to be continued... 

1. wicked witches can be melted.
2. angry wizards can be seen for what they are.
3. friends' true colors will shine through.
4. it doesn't take a lot to re-cognize: brains; courage; love.

to be continued...

1. it might seem difficult to 'return home'.
2. there is nothing more easy than 'returning home'...
3. ...Be-Cause 'Home' is that which we've never (Really) left.

welcome Home.
