Story Behind the Picture: Good or Bad?

I love the Wizard of Oz. I love the Wizard of Oz, even though I once had nightmares about a witch's legs shriveling up under a house, and sparkling ruby slippers that were coming to get me.

When I saw these shoes on the feet of my two-year-old niece, I began thinking of my favorite phrases from the movie. If you knew my two-year-old niece, saw her impish smile and clever eyes, ran after her as she tried to repeatedly dart into oncoming traffic, or watched her scale furniture of frightening heights in order to retrieve a cookie from the counter, you would know why I chose this particular quote.

Sometimes the only story I have to tell is the one about the sunny day, the Scrabble letters, and my niece's little ruby slippers. So, I ask you all: are you a good witch, or a bad witch?

I never read Wizard of Oz in English so when I was reading the words on your photo I thought that last word wasn going to be something different, ahahaha.
I am a good witch. Totally!

I am a good witch. But I have often wondered what it would be like to be a BAD one. It seems to me that the bad ones have a kind of power that I might enjoy, if even for one day. What would it be like to tempt the neighbor's husband? Or take all the attention away from the bride at the wedding? Or accept my Oscar and NOT THANK ANYBODY?

I love that my niece's shoes inspired your work. It is gorgeous and I am a fan of course. All I have to say is...most days a good witch.
