    Default Too Brilliant?

    My oldest grandson Samuel Henry Egensteiner (daughter Jennifer's oldest child) is in the IB (International Baccalaureate) program; he earns college credits while still in high school. He is 17. I was stunned when I saw how relaxed and grown up he was during his Individual Oral Presentation on Kafka's "Metamorphosis" as seen here on You Tube. Not to mention brilliant. a

    Artie:

    A young man to be proud of. Must be the Sam in your email.

    The video wouldn't play for me.

    Cheers

    You must be so proud, Artie!

    Samuel is indeed grown up. Not many young people read or understand Kafka's work at such young age. I would be thrilled to hear his presentation.

    Thank you so much for sharing, I look forward to see the video.

    Warmest regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    Busy watching - he is brilliant! I only discovered Kafka at 19, someone introduced me to his writings.

    This young man is going to go far, I am so taken with him! What's next? Camus? Borges?

    Please congratulate him from me

    Warmest regards,

    You have every right to be proud! He is indeed confident and obviously very smart, hardly ever referring to his notes. His mannerisms sure remind me of someone...

    Impressive, Artie. You and your sister must be proud. I can only imagine how much he is going to accomplish if he's already come this far at such a young age.
