Welcome to My Oz

wizaThe Wizard of Oz has always been a classic, because of the message it teaches.   Yearly it is enjoyed by children of all ages, but because of the symbolic search, the characters embark on. The search for personal growth is one that I am very familiar, the ability to think, have a heart, maintain your courage and find a home.  I think we are all looking for the same things. Here are a few things I have learned on my trip through Oz.

Close To Home

by Jonathan Hilton

Watch the stars, they are speaking to your soul.

Search the Sky for ANSWERS.

The lights are a delightful distraction.

The Truth will always become clear.

No matter how far away answers or stars are, 

the search will always and has always ended,

inside of you all along, and forever. 

close to home
The wonder of distance leads to the reality of closeness, where all answers lie.

That reality can be upsetting and cause great anger,

You can fight if you like, with words and emotions.

Struggle and push with all you have.

Fighting the Angry Chicken

I just wanted to ask, “How was your day?”

There are many times in life when you have to fight to be a man, today was not one of those days.  As I was minding my own business, thinking about enjoying the warm weather and getting some work done. I was interrupted by the gentle clucking of chickens outside.  The place where I am fortunate enough to work has their own chickens, that they do get their own eggs from, and so they serve a purpose.  I have seen them almost daily, and my interactions with them have until today been of the most perfunctory in nature.
