For Gogie,

who first took me to a darkened theater

and introduced me to a magical world

where anything could happen

I miss you every single day!
First words
Once upon a time, before any director ever yelled "CUT!", there was a sleeping little place just outside of Los Angeles with a few ranches and farms scattered here and there.
