Jim, I totally agree. But that's why I think it should be learning.
Those thing (prerequisites, Strategy, Analysis, preconditions) are the things they were doing in WofO.
Perquisites (getting there, being dissatisfied, making friends/allies)
Strategy (How do we get food, do we take others with us, how do we keep off the witch's radar)
Analysis (You've had the power to go home all the time/it was something I had to learn myself, put out the fire with water, you're just a humbug/you can't help me)
Preconditions (saving toto, getting the broomstick, control of the ruby slippers)
To me, I don't see (closure, hope, denial, or dreams).
You and Chris always say that it supports your interpretation if you have 3 instances of each...I see Learning, not Innermost desires.
