For me childhood = Joshua Tree (National Park and town).
My parents had friends who owned property out there and would spend Solstices and Equinoxes, lie out on lawn chairs in the desert night falling asleep to live rock'n'roll, being a part of a Medicine Wheel ceremony, and just enjoying the beauty and peace in the desert.
I think the best way to share this memory is to show you the desert I love so much.

I'm the far left one.
