Oprah & the Wizard of OZ
A few years ago, while watching an Oprah segment she opened up about her “life lesson” at age 7, an “ah-ha” moment! This was an “ah-ha” moment for me too, realizing the true power of “Oz.” And this is why I am pursuing this blog.
I want to hear your own stories.
[During a conversation with thought leader Jean Houston about the life lessons everyone can learn from The Wizard of Oz, Oprah opens up about how Glinda’s simple words — “You’ve always had the power” — have never left her.
“I remember I was probably 7 or 8 years old when I figured out [“The Wizard of Oz”] was more than just a story about the yellow brick road,” Oprah says. “I remember when I realized [Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion] were her friends and the yellow brick road means going up the path and looking outside of yourself and that it’s always right here.”
“You’re always wearing those red shoes,” Jean says.]
