The Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz already had what he was searching for – a brain. He was wise and intelligent even before reaching the Emerald City and presenting his request to the wizard.
Here’s why. Hanging in the cornfield it was he who told Dorothy of an idea how she could get him down. Remember, he told her that if she bent the nail holding him there he might just slide off?
We are often hanging on a question; waiting for an answer, when so many times we already have the answer, and yet…
is where the vaunted treasure lies.
Keys to our hearts,
to lie just out of arms reach.
The lock will open,
while we look at everything but.
and determination we see a future.
There is a promise
we search for what we already have.
