Where was the most magical moon you’ve ever observed? 

Up at Yonderosa, my daughter’s desert ranch, there are many magical moons. The new moon that looks just like a sliver of a fingernail. Or the full moon that casts a shadow of the Joshua Trees almost like a flashlight. We all sit on the patio and watch the moon rise over the desert vista, as the sun sets behind us. Then sometimes I wake up early and see the sun rising as the moon slips behind the mountain. It’s always beautiful, and also a little humbling, to see nature do her thing.
