When I'm not subjecting you all to my own blurry, wonky pictures I turn to Pixabay. I think I've mentioned it before. It's a great free resource for bloggers and anyone else who wants to choose from a wonderful selection of copyright-free images. When I was thinking about this post I wondered what sort of photos I'd get if I typed in the word 'normal'. The result was bizarre. Lots of pictures of cats, crossing railway tracks, a slow worm, a grandfather clock in the street of Baden Baden and, most curiously some shots of Chinese policemen posturing for a fight WTF! This charming shot was there too, tagged 'baby', 'normal life', 'lovely' 'Thailand'. I decided to use it as it's cute.
I crave normal. When I tell people they look at me with disbelief. 'You, oh quirky one?' they seem to say. And then they come out with that old chestnut 'What is normal anyway?' A good question but I think I know the answer. Normal is a state of peace where my kid and I are living peaceful, content lives. We are not causing chaos for others in our wake by our actions, words and deeds. We go about considerately with regard for others and don't get embroiled in the dramas that others create. That is my definition of normal good people. I think we've achieved it.
