THE NEW NORMAL
Health care workers....well, nurses....like to talk about permanent changes in health as "the new normal".
That makes sense for young people who break their necks , like Christopher Reeve did, and wake up to an altered world. Stable, but permanently altered, their new world calls for a new way of doing things, a way that must be learned if quality of life and influence, even power is to be restored to some degree.
Old age is nothing like that!!
There is no "new normal"!
One wakes up to a brand new world every day! And if it isn't a new world that morning, it may be by twilight.
For this is the twilight zone of life where the great lesson is that Life Is Fluid.
There is no normal. There is the Flow, and finally you realize that going with the flow, yielding to the larger stream IS life. There is no going back, only going forward wherever the Stream takes us.
Hang on for the ride of your life!
It is an experience unlike any other era in our lives.
Thanks for hanging on with me,
