I, like a lot of you, adore The Wizard of Oz. It’s just one of those crazy movies that we cling to. I never read the book, and honestly, I don’t know if there’s a follow-up.


But I’ve wondered. After Dorothy recovered from the ill-effects of that twister, was she still wearing the ruby red slippers? And what did she do with them then?


I like to imagine Dorothy did have the slippers after returning home. I like to think she went on to live a full, beautiful life in Kansas. And I like to believe that having had that spectacular adventure in Oz enabled her to appreciate all life has to offer. No matter which shoes she might wear.


This is my painted version of Dorothy’s closet. Since I used my own shoes in the staging, maybe it’s my life I’m envisioning after all. I’m clicking my heels right now…
