I type myself a letter…

When I moved to my new house…. I did not notice the Confederate flag on display across the street from me and I don’t care.  I learned long ago that what is in a person’s heart is not reflected in a flag they show.  51 years ago I learned that some of the most open/honest and dependable friends I gained were more accepting of a person of color than those who grew up North.

If I expect people to judge me by my character…. I have to be willing to do the same.

A stroll down the yellow brick road…

The Wiz toured the US in 1976… so that must be when I saw it.  Not sure anymore why I went but it blew my mind with joy… positive thoughts and fun.  They brought it back to TV live and got it right.

I hated the movie which forgot it was all about the child coming of age…  Going out into the world to getaway only to  discover the value of family that   …when one discovers that snowflakes have meaning and that moment when you want time to be your friend… while you still can return Home!

They got it right!
