Over the Rainbow

There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home…

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There’s a land that I’ve heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream,
Really do come true.

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
High above the chimney tops,
That’s where you’ll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can’t I?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can’t I?

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There’s a land that I’ve heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream,
Really do come true.

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
High above the chimney tops,
That’s where you’ll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can’t I?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can’t I?

Taking a stroll in my neighborhood, I am struck by the fact

that I live Somewhere Over the Rainbow… Perhaps we all do after all…

Yeah, there is no place like home!

***Lyrics as sung by Judy Garland in the iconic filmΒ Wizard of Oz

  1. Hi! It was so nice to be in the same pitch group with you at the Writers & Agents meeting on Saturday. And you looked GREAT on the Fox 44 news segment. I hope that your pitch went well and that we’ll see your novel in bookstores soon.

  2. A very touching write and awesome photo line up. I’m very appreciative of your “Nine Cents” girl. Most folk only put in their 2 cents – but you yield us sooo much more. Thanks so much. Good luck on your future literal ventures too. Ooo! )))HUGS(((

  3. You are soooo right, there is no place like HOME! I wonder why some people take so many opportunities to escape from home when I see they really have a nice home!
