JUST ABOVE SUNSET – as a commentary site – has gone dark, at least for now. For now there’s just occasional photography, and each Saturday that would be botanical photography.
Substitute Roses (35 images): Roses? Only the first rose is from today, Saturday, January 21, 2023. That’s all that was out there. Two weeks of rain ruined what was in bloom, and now everything is cut back, everywhere, waiting for sunny days. The other roses are from other Saturdays here in Los Angeles. Such roses will return.
Winter Cactus (35 images): Winter in Los Angeles. Cactus and hibiscus and those odd South African daisies. Everything else seems to be dormant. This is a strange place. ~ Saturday, January 21, 2023
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.
