I'm taking an extended and indefinite leave from viewfromaloft, leaving the day-to-day Downtown Los Angeles observations and cultural notes to others.
While close friends already know, and as some readers here and at blogdowntown have speculated, I haven't been Downtown for a while. I've been covering the city remotely.
As a contributor at KCET's blogs, I will still be writing about Downtown and Los Angeles, along with the Inland Empire and High Desert.
There will be some tinkering behind the scenes around here. I've been working on a personal portfolio with this multi-blog platform, and will update viewfromaloft's blogroll in time. Maybe I will finally add a post about my own mural work.
For now, just let me say it has been a pleasure to help build community through here and elsewhere. Thanks for reading.
