Each morning as I survey my kingdumb, I generally look over to the west to watch dogs getting run in a nearby park.
On some days the park serves as a rehearsal area for the Lincoln Park High School Marching Band.
On weekends there are the usual games of softball and frisbee.
These things happen in Oz Park. You would think that I would have written about this before considering my association with FABLES.
There are actually sculptures in the park representing several of the more important inhabitants of OZ. I'll get photos and post them later.
In my Fabletown.com profile I list my location as just South of the Oz Gateway; Bill places the portal from OZ far up in Canada.
In truth Baum wrote the original stories on Michigan Avenue, about 3.4 miles south of my building. That puts me NORTH of the point of origin, I guess.
