This is my latest song, yes indeed it is about coming home to both my partner and to the desert home that I love so much. It was inspired by driving home one night to our little village from the town about half an hour away. We realized it was the first time we’d driven home in the dark, and the moon was shining and it was a beautiful night. By the way, this particular moon has always been called the Winona moon by my family, because it looks like a smile in the sky, and was there the evening we brought her home from the hospital.
So my friend suggested I write a song, and this is what came out, part fiction, a lot truth, and one that really feels good to me and seems to flow. Sarita sang the melody on the chorus so that I could sing harmony, this is one of my favorites because it incorporates all my favorite things.
