Sunday Night Fiddler and Two Teen Girls

What fun Sunday afternoon to meet Kayla and her best friend Mazie at the Parsley Mediterranean Grill downtown, and then after some wonderful vegetarian fare, wandering over to the Civic Theater to enjoy "Fiddler on the Roof." I recall years ago, as Kayla would sit on my lap playing peas porridge hot, wondering how she would turn out as a teenager. I don't suppose I even imagined that one day as a junior in high school she and her good friend would be having so much fun interacting with us over a meal and laughing (and almost crying) together at a musical. It was very funny as well as deeply moving and sad at the same time. And to think that Antisemitism is still very alive and well today. We need reminders like that.
