In case you haven't yet checked out the latest Beats and Rhymes spoken word track from Mike The Poet -- here it is. Arrival Stories fans, you'll be familiar with the threads if not the quilt.
And on that note... Arrival Stories is now going on hiatus.
I have started a new job, as Assistant Dean, Public Affairs and Special Events, at USC's extraordinary Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.
To read all of the columns in the Arrival Stories series, please visit the column archives, here.
Great, great thanks to all of you who have read, shared, complimented, complained about, and of course, contributed to both columns.
Great, great thanks as well to the incomparable Juan Devis at KCET for the invitation to create three blogs over the past few years. (The original, Think Tank LA, was here.) Also thank you to Gary Dauphin and Yosuke Kitazawa and the rest of the KCET.org forward-thinking crew.
I'm looking forward to seeing all of you again soon upon my return to these pages. In the meanwhile, enjoy the good work from my colleagues elsewhere on the KCET.org site -- and please free to stay in touch with me via @LosJeremy on Twitter.
P.S.: I've been working during the past few months with some very talented people to come up with different ways of presenting some of these fantastic Arrival Stories that have already been collected and published. Mike's spoken word piece -- again, hear it here -- is one early example. And soon, I'll have news of another multi-media Arrival Stories collaboration. In the meanwhile...
