My daughter said that. We were driving up from Winfield to Wichita and outside of Belle Plaine passed a field of sunflowers that were being crop dusted by a bight yellow biplane. The plane matched the flowers! She watched out the car window and stated that "Kansas is a magical place all by itself." I love that! It is wonderful to experience the place I grew up through her fresh eyes.

After leaving Wichita in 1987, I have viewed my birthplace as a place to escape. It was a good place to grow up, but it didn't fit who I had become. It will be interesting to find out how to fit back into this town.
