For some reason, I imagined that as soon as we entered Los Angeles I would feel something perceptible, that it would be like entering the Emerald City, and that people would notice I was there. Look, they’d say, there’s that 9-year-old we’ve been waiting for! It’s strange when I think of it now since at the time I lived in the Bay Area and going into San Francisco was no big deal; it was just a city with taller buildings. But Los Angeles was something I’d seen on TV, and that meant something magical then.
