I was working downtown as a file clerk/process server. I went in on a Sunday to catch up on some work. When I broke for lunch I realized I had the downtown to myself. It was as if all the other people in the world had just vanished. It was the first time I realized how beautiful the city was. Pershing square, Angels flight, the courthouse, the LA times building. I wandered all day in this sense that I had been missing out on something and might not get a chance to see it again. The Bonaventure, the Library, the Biltmore, the Eastern building. I’d lived in LA all my life but it wasn’t till I had it to myself that I really felt like I saw it.
