Nov. 6: Thankful

Today, I’m thankful for The Wizard of Oz, my favorite movie of all-time. I’ve watched it countless times over the years, and I never grow tired of it. Without fail, I tear up at the end, when Dorothy realizes that “there’s no place like home.” It’s absolutely true. And there’s nothing like friends and family.

I want to write more about this, but I have a stack of essays to grade and read. But I’m sure that by the end of the month, I’ll revisit the ideas of home and family.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

  1. This movie has meant so much to me over the years… starting with the first time I realized I loved Judy Garland more than most people when I was ten years old. It was election night in November 1984, and I spent the night with my aunt. I remember telling her The Wizard of Oz was on tv that night, and she replied, “Oh, do we have to watch that again?” That question confused me on a cellular level.

    To this day, the movie means so much to me. What it means has transformed over time from my wanting to leave home to move over the rainbow to NYC (which was the Emerald City to me) to learning that wherever I go, the lessons of home and hearth are carried inside of me. I could go on. We’ll have to discuss this movie further at some point. 🙂

  2. I knew we were friends for a reason!

    The Wizard of Oz is my favorite movie of all time. As much as I like the “there’s no place like home” theme, my favorite lesson/theme is that she had the power inside her all along.
