mine twists turns hides reveals
challenges nourishes taunts
gifts puzzles outrageous beauty strangeness and much love
skips rolls hides seeks
disappears altogether then wraps itself around my heart
laughs sings dances and drags its feet
utterly confuses me then grounds me sweetly
the only thing i think i’m certain of
“off to see the wizard!”

I’m going through a phase where songs play through my head over and over and over on some of the pieces I’m playing around with. ‘Follow the Yellow Brick Road’ (by Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg) from the ‘The Wizard of Oz’ took center stage in my brain while i was painting this one. Hence, the title!
