Field of Winter Dreams
What happens when a California family leaves the familiar surroundings of beaches and mountains for a new field of dreams in Iowa? If it's summer time, there are barbecues, bonfires and visits to the lake. If it's winter, that Wizard of Oz moment happens when you wake up in the middle of your first blizzard and realize you're not in Kansas anymore. Your friends on the other side of the rainbow assume you're living some kind of nightmare but you know deep inside your life is made for the field of winter dreams. It's the moment you discover the magic of a white Christmas.
It doesn't matter to me that the outdoor temperature is only 1º this morning or that the howling winds make it feel more like -20º. I'm bundling up and heading to the indoor tennis courts this evening. And if Mother Nature keeps it up, maybe next year I will introduce my family to a new sport. It's California dreaming, Iowa style.
