Just Say No to Normal

Over the past few weeks, I’ve seen many social media posts that are inspiring, uplifting, and thought-provoking. Today, a former classmate, kindred spirit, and outstanding teacher of high school English shared the following quote from Sonya Renee Taylor. (Thanks, Beth.)

“We will not go back to normal. Normal never was. Our pre-corona existence was not normal other than we normalized greed, inequity, exhaustion, depletion, extraction, disconnection, confusion, rage, hoarding, hate, and lack. We should not long to return, my friends. We are being given the opportunity to stitch a new garment. One that fits all of humanity and nature.”   

I’ve read this paragraph several times, and I hope you’ll do the same. Consider it your daily ration of food-for-thought. I believe we’re awakening to a time of significant change, and it’s my hope that you’ll sign up for a new way of living, loving, thinking, creating, co-existing, and most importantly, being.
