Tonight I had a special experience. I got to see Wizard of Oz restored in 3D at the IMAX. It is playing through the end of the week so if you get a chance see it! Its amazing. They don’t make movies like that any more. The songs, sets, story, acting, everything is so wonderful. I have said before on my blog that Over the Rainbow is my favorite song of all time. I have 13 versions of it on my ipod. I love Judy Garland and think her life is one of such heartbreak.
I love the story of finding home, protecting your friends, searching for your dreams, and facing evil. The lesson Dorothy learns through her entire journey in Oz is pretty great:
“if I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with!”
