Normal no longer exists.
According to most dictionaries normal is defined as: “conforming to a type, standard, or regular pattern : characterized by that which is considered usual, typical, or routine.”
Guess what, normal doesn’t exist anymore. Everything is changing faster and more drastically. The word “normal” should be removed from our vocabulary.
Pandemics, wars, global heating, resource depletions, pollution, etc. have altered our lives. If anything like our conceptions of what used to be considered normal still exist, we will have to acknowledge it as only existing for a very short period before things change. A changing reality has wiped out normalcy for any significant length of time. What exists this minute will be different the next, effectively wiping out any past concepts of normal.
Even my photography won’t be normal.
We have to plan and prepare for things to be different, not as they used to be.
