All Good Gifts

Money may not grow on trees, but in the Land of Oz lunch-pails do -- which proves to be quite a boon to Dorothy on only her second visit to the enchanted land and its surrounding Fairy Countries. This scene -- although transposed from the context in which it originally appears in the novel -- was recreated exactly for Walter Murch's Return to Oz.

The lunch-pail tree may not be an official Kaballah Tree of of Life -- but like many trees, it is certainly life-giving. As Stan Lee used to say, "'Nuff said!"

-- Frede.
