We could do this, you know. Normality as we once knew it is gone. The slate really could be wiped clean (with a Clorox wipe) and we could begin something extraordinary, if we wanted to do it. I don’t think we will right now because you need a visionary leader to accomplish such a thing, probably more than one. And I haven’t seen many visionaries recently. But right now while the slate is erased, I can’t help but contemplate the possibilities.
Normality is Too Normal
By Michelle Garren Flye
Normality is too normal for me.
I have no wish to go back there.
What’s so great about normal?
Extraordinary is better.
Rainbows and butterflies
Are not normal at all.
Last year, small toads
Hopped through our yard
That became normal.
It wasn’t great, though.
We ran over them by accident
And felt bad when we saw it.
Normal. Not good.
Definitely not great.
Roses and daffodils aren’t normal.
You have to wait for them to bloom
And then they’re only here for a while.
They are extraordinary.
If you think about it all the great moments
So why go “back to normal”?
Forward to extraordinary, instead!
