The new normal

Street scene in Hong Kong

A contradiction-

Making time invalid,

Inevitably-

The world has to change,

Is social distance

a cure or infection?

What’s new in the normal?

  1. I have long touted the benefits of solitude, so I was gratified to see this: “Is social distance / a cure or infection?” I hope people are using this time to think deep thoughts, to realize we are all connected, to see how much of our daily consumption is wasteful or unnecessary, to consider how we might do better personally and as a whole. I hope they are cooking and gardening and reading and playing music and making art and looking at old photos… πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks for your thoughtful comment Joan. I also find it interesting that there are some who see new normal as a new opportunity to do the same old things in the same old way whereas there is an opportunity to be creative and paint on a blank canvas. Besides the word normal will itself need to be redefined. Anyway, now that we might be learning the value of other things in our lives, how may we use build on that. Actually, I might do a post on this.πŸ˜‰

  3. It feels so good to be back at home with one of my favorite people, Chevvy!

    We were in your studio, now we’re in your diary. We’ve gotten closer! LOL!!
    Anyway,
    This really is a new normal. I’ve noticed that some of us have started calling it “physical distancing,” as opposed to social distancing; I guess it makes folks feel better to think of it that way…LOL! In the end, it doesn’t change the fact that we can’t touch each other; which is more important than we ever imagined.

    It’s very interesting to see how this pandemic has caused people to be creative in their everyday lives. Girl, you see I’m trying my best to be optimistic.
    But…
    Ron and I recorded a discussion on politics, which is a topic that I usually avoid, and we got into the thick of how things devolved….I mean in the U.S.
    I’m posting it later today, you’ll have to check it out when you have time.

    1. It’s lovely to have you here Lady G. I love journalling and thought it would great to share some of the daily events, thoughts of life around us. We are an important era of history as we speak. And why not have some exchange of views hereπŸ˜€
      I do miss my music though and it aint no studio without my music Girl – but we’ll see.

      Yea there is a difference between physical and social distancing though changing the words doesn’t necessarily change what’s in your head. What to do? There’s lots to chew the fat on.

      I’ll look forward to what you and Ron are up toπŸ’‹πŸ’‹
