Making sense

Anne Lamott, on writing ...

"We are a species that needs and wants to understand who we are. Sheep lice do not seem to share this longing, which is one reason why they write so little. But we do. We have so much we want to say and figure out.”

Field of Dreams ...

Everyone who knows me knows how much I love baseball. And the Midwest. Some people crave coastal living ... not Kathleen Stander. I've been to California; I've been to New York; my heart belongs in Missouri. Maybe Minnesota (I do so love winter). Perhaps Iowa. Kansas, not so much. Ditto for Nebraska.
So the spouse and I are heading to Dubuque. Has (his name, for the uninitiated) says that Dubuque, Iowa is, in his estimation, the most beautiful city in this great nation. No homebody is he, either. His employment takes him around the country in both clockwise and counter-clockwise direction. He's pretty much been everywhere. And he still maintains that Dubuque is "where the living is at."
I'll soon found out. Dyersville, Iowa, is the location where my favorite baseball movie, Field of Dreams, was filmed. The field is there, and the farmhouse that cutie-pie Kevin Costner called home in his role as the baseball-loving farmer. So we'll be visiting Dyersville, which is about ten miles outside of Dubuque.
I'm excited to visit some of the painted ladies that decorate this river town, set high upon a bluff.
Lots of pictures I'll take, and then will post.

I've never been to Iowa, but I'm a sucker for houses like your beautiful painted lady. Does your husband respond to the landscape,the weather, or the people (or some combination) when he rates Iowa so highly?

Hey, Kate ~

I got more than a bit spoiled by your spate of great writing this summer... and realized it's been a while since you posted - hope all is okay and, if not, let us know if you need support in any way, okay?... <3
