Red Moon Rising 
Lake Tahoe, Nevada
August 2013

Wildfires have been ravishing the California Sierra’s and with that, smoke has billowed into the Lake Tahoe Basin making conditions very undesirable.  The skies have been gray and the sun has been an odd color of orange; almost like something out of a movie.  Although the air has been of terrible quality, it has been producing some of the most unique and interesting sunsets I’ve ever seen.  On August 22, I was driving home and notice a red glow in the sky.  I was caught off guard when I realized that it was the moon.  The smoke in the atmosphere filtered the normal white glow of the moon into blood red.  So much for our “Blue Moon” this month.

The sky began to glow, creating a ceiling of orange and purple above us. It was almost too much for my two eyes to take in, but they did their best. Mother nature always gifts us with the most precious beauty.

Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.

I think, at a child’s birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity.

The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gayThe glory that was Rome is of another dayI’ve been terribly alone and forgotten in ManhattanI’m going home to my city by the BayI left my heart in San FranciscoHigh on a hill, it calls to meTo be where little cable cars climb halfway to the starsThe morning fog may chill the air, I don’t careMy love waits there in San FranciscoAbove the blue and windy seaWhen I come home to you, San FranciscoYour golden sun will shine for me

The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gay
The glory that was Rome is of another day
I’ve been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan
I’m going home to my city by the Bay

I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill, it calls to me
To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars
The morning fog may chill the air, I don’t care

My love waits there in San Francisco
Above the blue and windy sea
When I come home to you, San Francisco
Your golden sun will shine for me
