Glinda the Good Witch Is a Nice Polish Girl from Chicago “The metaphor I chose, the BP Bridge and the Chicago skyline as the Yellow Brick Road and the Emerald City, required a figure in the foreground to make the equation complete. Automatically I resorted to photos I’d taken of Teresa dressed in white standing in the snow last winter. She would be my Glinda the Good Witch. She would be my Billie Burke. Not because of any guidance she gave me. Not because she saved my ass from a witch or told me how to use my shoes to escape a permanent poppy field. Nope. It’s much simpler than that.”
