A Vacation

Let’s write off the rest of this week. Thanksgiving is reason enough. And here, that’s a trip out of town to spend time with the extended family, one hundred miles south but not quite in Mexico. There will be no way to feed the blog or the photography site for a few days. So be it. Perhaps it’s best to start up again on the Sunday evening after Thanksgiving, with fresh eyes.

For now, consider this –

Tree Therapy (35 images):  A walk in the park – Echo Park – by the lake – because the world is an awful mess – and because the slow life of trees in the bright sun isn’t a mess at all. The trees are a sort of therapy. Slow down. Dream in the sunshine.

Disturbed Skies (35 images): Dark skies rolling in off the cold Pacific. Dry hot empty Santa Ana winds blowing in off the Mojave. They meet over Robert Merrell Gage’s Noble Savage at the Electric Fountain – from 1931 – on the corner of Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevards. Late autumn in Los Angeles.

About Alan

The editor is a former systems manager for a large California-based HMO, and a former senior systems manager for Northrop, Hughes-Raytheon, Computer Sciences Corporation, Perot Systems and other such organizations. One position was managing the financial and payroll systems for a large hospital chain. And somewhere in there was a two-year stint in Canada running the systems shop at a General Motors locomotive factory - in London, Ontario. That explains Canadian matters scattered through these pages. Otherwise, think large-scale HR, payroll, financial and manufacturing systems. A résumé is available if you wish. The editor has a graduate degree in Eighteenth-Century British Literature from Duke University where he was a National Woodrow Wilson Fellow, and taught English and music in upstate New York in the seventies, and then in the early eighties moved to California and left teaching. The editor currently resides in Hollywood California, a block north of the Sunset Strip.
