And on...

It seems as if I've been on this Wizard of Oz kick for a while, but if you've seen the movie, you understand. Dorothy's journey through the Land of Oz lasted for about 2 hours, however, there is no way she did all the things she did in a mere 2 hours.

My journey is one that is filled with riddles and mysteries. I often wonder what it is I'm learning here. Today I feel as if I've made it to the gates of the Emerald City and I can't get in until I can answer the riddles laid before me. And math seems to be the biggest riddle of all ((f(g)x)) and the whys and wherefore so that go with this). I can't get into the city until I can answer all of these riddles. Im frustrated beyond all belief and wonder why I want into the damned city anyway.

Then, I stop, take a breath, and remember that I need to get into the city in order to meet the great and powerful Oz. We know from the movie that he's just a normal man who hides behind a curtain. I'm hoping to find something more. I'm hoping that there really is a Great and Powerful Oz who can help make all of my dreams come true. Maybe the Tin Man will become real and get his heart. The Cowardly Lion may find his courage. The Scarecrow might get a brain...but it all hinges on me and this damn math riddle.

The Yellow Brick Road Goes On...

It has been awhile since I've written a blog post, but let me tell you...that field of poppies where I took a nap? Whew! It was needed but took a lot of time. So, I'm back on the yellow brick road and trusting it will lead me to my Emerald City.
I've had to let go of a few hopes and dreams along this path. The poppies helped me release a few people who meant so much. The poppies eased the pain of letting go.
Now, I'm back and feeling stronger than ever. I'm working toward my career know...the goals that will mean a steady paycheck? The writing is on the back burner while I deal with school, my job, and my personal life. Finding my balance is the hard part. So many changes and additions have definitely added a new layer to my complicated life and enriched it in so many ways.
I'm meeting so many new people on my yellow brick journey. Some are cowardly lions. Others are tin men and scarecrows. There are a couple of munchkins and my version of Toto who keep me company as I walk along. The wicked witch and her flying monkeys are off terrorizing others for now, but we are always looking skyward. Just in case.
So now that I have you updated, I probably should get ready for Psych class. Exploring the mind and its inner workings fascinates this modern day Dorothy.
Here's hoping that the wicked witch and her minions keep you off their radars!
