This right here … is a promise… the promise of summer!
The pandemic changed everyone’s lives and overturned many a plan.
I’ve been blessed not to have much taken from me … My biggest loss has been that of my wings. The joy of exploring a new place and stumbling upon some hitherto, unknown gem.
In a couple of weeks I’ll be vaccinated and in a few months things will be back to “normal”. Why are we so keen to go back to “normal”? Normal wasn’t working for the planet. Normal wasn’t working for many of us. Normal definitely wasn’t working for me.
We are a species with a very short memory. We write books but forget the moral. I don’t want normal. I’m not the only one who doesn’t.
Being stuck in traffic. Stupid reality shows shoved down our throats in the name of entertainment. Excessive consumption. The inability to be grateful for all we have.
As the season turns, I hope I can do things differently. I hope you can do things differently. I hope each of us gets the “normal” we long for!
