Father's Day A Month Late

Father's Day 2014:

It's the brown bag that was my dad's lunch transport system each and every day, and brought home to be used again, folded nicely.

General Electric was the mother ship: a home to working-class geniuses, their tales of brilliance shared by my dad as with an honest reverence to balance my enthusiasm of a Reggie Jackson home run streak.

This is the guy who would come home from work and say " I love my job. I get to work with the greatest minds of our time". Whether it was true or not, it didn't matter. The message was clear : get yourself in a position to do what you want to do, and appreciate the others who want that too.

Happy Father's Day Jim Archibald!
