My story in a nutshell: I grew up on the outskirts of Los Angeles, just far enough west to feel like the city was a world away. I’ve lived up and down the coast of California, from San Francisco to San Diego. Having lived in LA proper for almost ten years, I can scarcely remember living anywhere else. Or why I lived anywhere else. I love LA. I love the restaurants, the music, the museums. The architecture, the weather, the people. Yes, the people. Hell, sometimes I don’t even mind the traffic. Sometimes. I appreciate the history, the grit, the glamour. I’m more entertained by the city itself than its entertainment outputs. I’m amused by the quirkiness, the savvy, the jaded attitudes. Simply put, I love LA.
I am eager to share all the wonders of this great city with my son. With bright eyes and babe in arms, I am off to rediscover my beloved city, all through the eyes of a child. My child.
