Quote from Sunnyside by Glen David Gold

“Film had come to Hollywood because of the light, the 350 days of good weather a year, and as the films were released around the world, they proved how beautiful Hollywood was.  And so the land was vanishing as quickly as they could film it.  The landlocked poet in Collins, Illinois, and the frustrated beauty of Teaneck, New Jersey, saw where they could live in tune with what they had always wanted to be.  It was obvious, upon seeing the beaches and hills and palms, that your current self was just a stand-in for someone not yet arrived.  If only you could live in such a beautiful place, the rest would change.  People at their weakest, most trusting, and childlike moments believed there was out there for them somewhere a Sunnyside.  Which meant the place was eventually one hundred two-bedroom bungalows.  The mystery not yet solved was how to love a place when your mere presence destroyed it.”

– Glen David Gold, Sunnyside
