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 (30 images): Roses from the last Saturday in March, eight years ago, Saturday, March 28, 2015, because there were no roses anywhere this Saturday. The endless storms have ruined things for a bit. Heavy rain coming this next week too. But one day there will be new roses.
Spring Arrives (45 images): The first Saturday after the vernal equinox in Beverly Hills, by the fountain in Will Rogers Park, the first Saturday of Spring. The winter storms may be ending. It’s about time. ~ Saturday, March 25, 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.
