“If it’s inside of us, why do we not reach for it all the time?”

When Dorothy woke up from the land of Oz, surrounded by her smiling and relieved family, she had an epiphany, that had escaped her nearly the entire film. Clicking her heels in triplet succession, closing her eyes and believing in the words she was saying, there’s no place like home. there’s no place like home, is how she both made it from and found her inner Oz. It was with her family, with people that loved her and she loved too/ Inside of the moment, Dorothy had found what she was looking for. But more importantly, in her nightmare she had discovered, that they were with her all along.

However, while we are searching, and even before we know inner peace and love and destiny exists for us, then what is ‘IT’ doing? What emotion or feelings do we mistake it for or cover up or suppress? If it lives inside of us, then why is it so hard to find? Where is Oz when we need it most?

Theme: American Places
Hint: Kansas

The Question: Where is Oz? (In relation to this image,
considering theme and inside category, which is also a hint.

kansasEach wrong response – and there were many – felt like a personal rejection, as if they truly believed, what they were looking for, could be found in Oz. Unlike the other questions, not one person got this one right. So I sent the answer up and this was the reply: “It was right here with me all along. I just didn’t see”  

79 years later, and we are still comprehending what Dorothy meant. Oz is with us always, the search need not go on. But it lives inside the bigger picture. The theme is the outside world; the category is our place in it. And when we forget who we are, remember this hint: even in the bigger picture, the photograph is still you.
