Mr. Simon, I've missed you.

We went to The Norton Simon Museum of Art. I spent three years working there so it felt really nice to visit it. It felt all cozy and I started to really miss working there. We visited the bookstore and it has been renovated and looks quite spiffy. I loved working there. I met amazing people and learned so much. There were a lot of familiar people there but I'm too shy to say "hello." It did feel good to see that some things were still the same.

They have a Vermeer there right now. That was exciting. They also had a small exhibit of American posters from World War I and II.

If you're in the area, you should check it out. I think everyone should visit The Norton Simon.


It is always a good time.


Sometimes I wish I could work there again. But, without the same people, it would be sad. I have to remind myself not to romanticize it. I will cherish my time there and visit as often as I can. There, I wrote it down.

I do that! I make things that happen in the past seem far better (or worse)than they ever were. What a cool place to work! You'll work somewhere cool like that again. Although I think the bakery job sounds pretty fun!

That is such a cool place. I would have loved to have seen the posters from WWI and WWII.
