Wicked fun...





I'm reading a great book right now...called "WICKED" by Gregory Maguire. It's about the goings on in the land of Oz and regions thereabout and the citizens...it's GREAT...It's actually written, primarily, from the point of view of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch that chases Dorothy and company. She is fabulous...bright...funny...dark...and incredibly human. She and Galinda, whom we know as the "good" witch of the north, are roommates in college...I'm not giving too much away here, as I'm only on page 80. I am so enchanted by this book, I can't put it down. Again, this is further confirmation of my fascination with psychology and the human psyche, this proclivity I have for understanding the souls of people we would rather hide away from, or hide away from us. This has been going on in my life for as long as I remember and it's deliriously wonderful to have the time to pursue it. Oh, my sweet young friends, when your children are gone and your home is quiet, you will follow your passions and become incredibly wise(R) women and your life will take a direction you perhaps never saw coming but you follow that yellow brick road...skipping most of way...
