What is he trying to say comparing his move to Oz? Dorthy and gang were on a fools quest to seek help from a fraud.
Yes, but the traditional Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage is a dusty, dry, yellow road of sacrifice, fasting, physical pain, hardship, providence, repentance, introspection and prayer that ends in profound praise of the one true God and a resolve to serve Him better.
The seekers on the road to Oz were all seeking something and they all found it - but it was a “new age quest”.
This version (hopefully) is an “age old quest”!
