Today is the 155th birthday of Lyman Frank Baum, the Royal Historian of Oz and author of 14 books about the wondrous fairyland known as Oz. In celebration of this day, I have made homage to my favorite cemetery, which so happens to be the location for a lovely entrance into Oz known as the Archway In The Woods.
That entryway is just behind and out of view, though the dry, yellow sand creek bed runs directly through the trees over my shoulder. If you turn left, you run into Oz, but if you turn right, Wonderland awaits you... Or so I discovered one day. It was there that I once met my second cousin, twice removed... The Mad Hatter!
