The Metropolitan Museum of Art Through Multiple Kids’ Eyes Part 1

There is something amazing about being surrounded by human creative achievement from all over the world throughout history that has increased our visits and my desire to relate them.

There is also something about combining children with Five Thousand years of artistic output that always becomes a source of comedy gold.

No Rest for the Wicked (Long Trip)


As engineering responsibilities and my title increased, yet old requirements lingered on, I tried to clarify two things up the chain of command.

A) One of the main reasons I’ve stayed at my company over twenty-five years is an almost negligible amount of travel away from my family was required, which is also a main requirement to extend this time past a quarter century.

B)  I felt I was spending an excessive amount of time working on and explaining a specific one of our review systems, and hoped to get others more well versed in its use, allowing me to focus on other avenues.

The response to this was, naturally, to assign me to the corporate wide team to come up with overall guidance on that review system, requiring a trip for all of us to have a several day face to face meeting at our New Hampshire campus.
