I Feel Just Like Dorothy

"if I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own backyard. Because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with!"

The gate has been locked since we moved in. We didn't have a key. Water gurgled and splashed beyond the fence, but we had no way to get there. One day I said to Brad, "Just unbolt the latch from the wood and buy a new one."

What we discovered there is a true miracle in our lives. Lush, cool, with towering cottonwoods. The water is just cold enough to give me shivers when I first put my toes in. The birds flitter back and forth. This is luxury beyond belief in the desert of Nevada. And it was there all along.
