Waiting for Glinda
I watched 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' with the kids a few days ago, and the next day, when I saw the morning sun shining through this ball in the front yard, it reminded me of the scene where Glinda appears. Is it Glinda? Now that I'm writing this, something about that seems wrong. Anyway, I loved the glow of the leaves on the maple tree and also the way the sunlight made the ball look like it was glowing. I thought it was beautiful and magical (unlike Glinda, who is not beautiful, has an annoying voice, and could have spared Dorothy a lot of trouble by just zapping her back to Kansas in the first place.)
Maybe if we wait a little longer...
Oh. And by the way, I thought The Wizard of Oz was a scary movie when I was a kid. Those monkeys! That wicked witch of the West! Very scary. I don't think my grandkids were scared. Did they take some of the scary bits out, or are kids just tougher these days?? or does it have to do with the fact that special effects are way more believable these days?
Were you scared?
