This is me at Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, 1970. That’s my brother Billy in the right-hand frame. I always wished his whole self was in the picture. I was born in L.A. and lived there until I was almost seven. Every time I return, there is a strange familiarity that brings me an odd sense of comfort – even all these years and changes later.
Here is a picture of Griffith Observatory today.
By the way, see those pink sponge rollers in my hair? I wore those to bed every night throughout my youth and childhood — all the way up to the year I got my first spiral perm, 1988. Happy Flashback Friday, friends.
