During this “lockdown” I keep on hearing the words:
“When things get back to normal”
At one stage these words also made me cry, because what is ‘normal’?
“I don’t know what normal means anyway.” – Karl Lagerfeld
“Normality is a paved road. It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow.” Vincent van Gogh
“Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos to the fly.” Morticia Addams
What does the word “normal” mean to you?
I know that playing pretend is not a solution to how to cope with reality, it is the only way I know how until I figure how to think outside of the box, or rather think like there was no box to begin with….because who knows what the future will hold.
“When the world says, “give up”, Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.” You have more potential than you believe you do. Don’t cry because it is over, smile because it happened.”
