Golden State

November 2020

The land of red chili peppers.

Growing up, California was only represented in my life by TransWorld skateboarding magazines and episodes of Rocket Power, both of which seemed implausible.

"More than one skatepark? No way."

Eventually, I learned that this magical land was, in fact, a real place people could visit and live.

If only California had more sunshine it might be perfect. ◆
