Bella Luna. This luminous vision looming in front of me while driving this morning, captured my attention. The brilliant, silvery moon, so large and magnificent, was mesmerizing. I felt if I kept driving to the edge of the horizon that I would be able to reach out and touch its surface. As I watched the radiant sphere slowly creep downward into the West, I was reminded of one of my favorite movies of all times, Moonstruck, starring Cher and Nicholas Cage. An enchanting, mystical full moon was the recurring backdrop as the plot followed the romantic twists and turns of the key characters. I just love the story line, humor, and theme…..true love and the importance of family…. that resonates throughout the film. And the music! Many romantic Italian classics from the soundtrack (which I own) echoed through my mind. This is one of those movies that I can watch over and over  That’s Amore!
