The Third Place (Chapter 11) – Chemistry

Posted on August 13, 2018

Values are remarkably tensile things, bringing humanity back to the fore while dispensing to the periphery those things less vital.? The Third Place wasn’t so much a business as it was a sanctuary, a tribute to the best that was in us all.? It summoned all manner of emotions and aspirations and even made the atmosphere somewhat quaintly electric with expectation.? I think that if it hadn’t existed I would never have seen those distinctive dimensions of my father that helped me to view him as someone more than just an adult figure.? It showed me the remarkable fluid partnership between my parents that was so much more than just two guardians watching over their children.?I saw my community as an essentially good place,…

The Third Place (Chapter 10) – The Worst of Times

Posted on August 11, 2018

Aware that the rapid movement of wealth around the globe was slowly stripping the fibre of our community from our midst, along with so many other regions that had depended on basic manufacturing for economic survival, an inevitable sense of decline hovered over our city.? Gloom was everywhere.? It began when a couple of large auto parts suppliers shut down for good but inevitably picked up speed as other businesses first cut down on their services and then closed down altogether.? Social services reported record numbers of people seeking help and even our successful local sports teams succumbed to dispiriting losing streaks.? It was like some kind of emotional plague had infested the populace. In such situations,? communities can start coming apart or drawing…

The Third Place (Chapter 9) – Rebuttal

Posted on August 9, 2018

Eventually what was rumbling through Finn’s mind emerged, not in speech but in words.?He had kept his anger and channelled it into something more creative.? What resulted was a piece of brilliant writing that seemed to set the universe right again. The local print newspaper responded quickly to Finn’s request to write a column on the need to see the Third Place for the remarkable operation that it really was.?He told us nothing about it, but the newspaper had offered him a feature column in its Op-Ed section on a Saturday a few weeks following the online publishing of the university’s piece. It was Daisy that had risen early that morning and collected the paper from the front doorstep.? After sitting down for a…

The Third Place (Chapter 8) – Finn

Posted on August 8, 2018

How it all worked out was almost as if by design.? It turned out the Finn was an ardent student of how humanity interacted with food.? At the talk that first evening, Dad was so impressed by the young man’s curiosity that he asked if he would be willing to take over the entire breakfast operation – subject to Dad’s oversight naturally.? At a loss for next steps in his life, Finn hesitantly agreed but then approached the challenge with relish.? He looked over at his grandmother seeking her approval.? All Mrs. Dawson did was smile before offering to come in during the morning meal time to help out until he gained some confidence. Confidence was hardly something Finn lacked. He was in the…

The Third Place (Chapter 6) – A New Concept

Posted on August 6, 2018

Subtle changes were taking place in the restaurant – a remarkably steady clientele, becoming an anchor establishment in a quaint village that drew from all portions of the city, and an evident kind of reverence for Mom and Dad. Business had been so good for our parents that they had to institute the reservation system to curtail long lineups – something Dad never wanted to do.? I suppose it was inevitable they would give into the pressure and open up for breakfast every weekday. It was a family decision, though we looked to Dad to provide a good reason for the move.?Ever said that the whole idea was something he never entertained, confessing that he loved the mornings having coffee with Mom and poring…
