Track 10/100

Today is my ten-year anniversary living in Los Angeles, a city plagued by associations with fake boobs and cocaine cowboys, casting couches and Charles Bukowski, smog and deception. It's taken me many years to pull my head out of the masses' judgment and see this city with my own eyes.

And now? I can't stop staring.

Happy Anniversary, Los Angeles: mecca of dreamers, land of many signs and stories come true.
