The file date shows that this image was recorded on July 12, 2015. Five months ago, and so much has changed. I had stopped at Joshua Tree to spend my first real night in my new (to me) RV. True, I had spent the night before in the coach, but that had been in an RV park pretty much under the supervision of the previous owner. This night I was all on my own in a way I hadn’t been in years, and I couldn’t have picked a more suitable place for such a transitional night. This place was as different from my home in Connecticut as I could have imagined. Five months, and so far, so good.
