I’ve continued the tradition this year of taking my kids on mini after-school adventures. I wish I could have planned more, but I have a few more places to hit and things to do between now and the end of May.
Last week, we stopped by Kaiser’s Soda Fountain in the Midtown District of Oklahoma City. They love to go to Kaiser’s! It’s changed hands a few times over the years (decades). The current setup including menu, food and atmosphere are the best (IMO).
Kaiser’s should pay this employee more money just to keep up her cool look. She definitely added to our experience! That giant ceramic ice cream reminds me of AVON lip glosses I had as a kid.
“In living, and moving and having something of our being in a home culture, even with its all-too-human fuss and bother, if we but smuggle in something of the simple cargo – sturdy, comfortable furniture, fresh food, home cooked meals, good wine, one set of fine china for special meals, paintings and ancestral portraits on the wall, an old upright piano, acoustic guitar, any non-electric instrument, a time set apart to read aloud before prayers and bedtime – if we but make a welcome hearth for the songs of the Muses, we too will know that even on this earth, now and again, a courage will visit among us in those comforting, beautiful reflections of the permanent things, quite surprising yet strangely familiar for us who are passing to and fro in these playful shadows, and we will begin to see as Odysseus recognized, “something very much like perfection.”
May your life be filled with playful shadows, paintings and bedtime prayers!
