It’s All a Matter of Perspective

Last week the moonrise was stunning. There was a haze of smoke in the air from the fires burning all over the West. The moon was a golden glowing orb, with strands of smoke clouds blowing over it.

I said, “It looks like a Chinese painting.”

My son said, “It looks like something from a Harry Potter movie.”

My husband said, “It looks like the moon from the Peter Pan ride at Disneyland.”

Beauty from destruction. I remember the red moons & stars from the forest fires in Provence.

Yes, we had horrible fires here three years ago, but the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen.
