All the last two years have done for me is to slap me in the face and tell me to stop backsliding and not seeing the obvious by being willfully ignorant or another fish in the school! Now I see a more crystalized view of what is coming and none of it pretty because though I’ve always been an eternal optimist and saw the glass as half full, the bottom-line is that all this world can over is death after getting some of what you want out of it and taking a lot of crap with it!
It’s actually good this happened now and I prefer it had sooner, because reality is hardcore and I wish I had seen like I do now 20 or more years ago, so I could have done even a better job of selecting my venues or battles and prepared better; instead of allowing myself to get beat up badly! All because of my having been a dreamer and fool to think this world would give me anything other than the hardship that it dished out to me through other people and by my own miscalculations or mistakes; most of it came via trusting people or even worse the wrong people!
But the caveat is that through pain and great hardship character and inner strength or wisdom has been forged into my soul like the tempering of steel; now making me a more fearless man ready for whatever I must face than I would have been otherwise! The school of Hard Knocks in many instances in this world is unavoidable and even necessary if one wants to rise above the clamor and foolishness or finally not be another fish in the school following along!
Now as always I see God has it all planned for those who believe; how it will work out fine, though now it’s not just a conceptualization off in the future; it’s a present growing yearning!
C.S. Lewis put it best: “When the whole world is running towards a cliff, he who is running in the opposite direction appears to have lost his mind.” — C. S. Lewis
I finally became a much saner or some would say realistic! And didn’t lose my mind at all!

So all everyone has had on their minds the past 2 years is “the new normal.” So much so it has for many become the normal normal. For others it has always remained abnormal.
It is now interesting to see how humanity will react to losing what was called normal and now be told to adjust to, well, what ever seems normal to you. Adjust we will though, whether we admit it or not.
And we will return to old normals and all those things we swore we would never do again, like shake hands or kiss a friend on the cheek. Judging by the pandemonium in the evening train we have already lost our terror of crowds and commuting.
We all want to fly again although 2 years ago we were all so thrilled to finally see a blue sky instead of smog. Distant mountains were as clear as…
