Next week Friday we will arrive in Wroclaw. And then in May I will be taking a train to Kyiv. I have daily communications with friends in Kyiv and when you listen to them they sound calm and normal. I hear about kids going to school, new restaurants opening, cultural events, sporting activities, and daily routines that sound normal. But of course, things are not normal. There are air raid sirens and the evil Russian invasion is far from over.
I also chat with friends here in South Africa and I also hear about kids, sports, restaurants and all kinds of normal sounding things. But things are not normal here either. The electricity is off half the day. The murder rate is the highest ever. And there are so many poverty stricken people living in hell all over the place.
Where is it normal … ?
What is normal … ?
I wonder if I am normal. I am not sure anymore.
