Note from Paula Panich, May, 2013:
On the at play in l.a. blog please find a new series of posts called Mountain Stories. The mountains in question are the San Jacintos, above Palm Springs. Never heard of them? Neither have most people in Los Angeles, which is only about two hours west. I spent most of April and will spend part of May up here practicing daily journalism and writing short essays on what I think about when I’m in the much-beloved mountains.
Many of these pieces are sketches for what will be more in-depth stories.
