On our travels this summer, my husband and I passed a street sign for Yellow Brick Road. When I pointed it out, he asked if we should see where it led. I quickly assessed the distance we still needed to travel that day before saying, “No.”
My phone was charging so I wasn’t even able to take a picture of the sign.
For days afterward I was upset with myself. If I learned anything from the movie, The Wizard of Oz, it was to follow the yellow brick road!
I had the chance but didn’t take it. We were far from home and not going to be passing that way again so the opportunity was forever lost.
i wonder how many opportunities I’ve missed because I was focused on somewhere else I thought I needed to be. The only way I can create value in this is to be aware of and willing to follow the roads that are of interest to me. Who knows what adventures I may find?
Now I ask you to please do me a favour. If you are in the vicinity of Thunder Bay, Ontario and see the sign for Yellow Brick Road, please follow it and let me know where it took you.

I like what you wrote even though you didn’t follow that “yellow brick road” or get a photo of the sign! I hope you do hear from someone who did.
Thanks Lois. Sign or not, we all have our Yellow Brick Roads to follow!
