I found this wonderful quote on a scrumptious blog that I like to drown in when I’m feeling …. well, ordinary!
“My darling girl, when are you going to understand that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage.”
and so I look around at the vignettes of my life, and I notice:
I have a fish in a blender on my kitchen counter;
I have a landscape in my fireplace to keep out the dr aft;
And I realize that I, like so many others
who shelter under the cloak of suburban normality,
am so very, very far from ordinary.
