Expanding Pools of Lovely Normal

 A   L   O   H   A   From Honolulu!

Normalcy was declared.

Arundhati Roy, 

The Ministry of Utmost Happiness

Madness means just this 

dislocation of the 

modes of thought 

which mortals have agreed upon 

as necessary to keep 

the world together.

 John Buchan

Maybe just a case of 

one person's "normal" 

being another person's 

Twilight Zone.

           Angela N. Blount

Only when normal things 

are not normal anymore, 

do we realize how special 

normal things are!



We should give ourselves 

the benefit of the doubt. 

We shouldn't 

shoot ourselves down 

before putting ourselves 

up there.

Janine Myung Ja


Love You,

                     Cloudia & Pixie

I have a fridge magnet which says 'the only normal people are those you don't know very well'.

"Normalcy was declared."
But which version of normal? Mine or yours?

Cloudia said...

Mike I stole your shtick! E.C. I love that 💗

Teresa said...

I love Arundhati Roy's novels! I also love this blog. Great pictures of the new normal, the "natural" normal, and everything in between.
