to me, back to normal, when the pandemic is over and done, to some people is scary and worrisome. the life I am living right now is normal. the pandemic never stopped me from going outside, and taking several walks a day. I was careful as to what stores I went to, which was not that many, and I always wore a mask in public and still do to this day. if I am by myself I will either lower it, or take it off, but always will pull it up, and/or put it back on. wearing a mask most of the time doesn’t bother me, though it does at times get sweaty. also I’ve got both vaccine shots, so that’s a plus.
so I live the normal in its present tense, not looking back before the pandemic, as that ship has sailed. as for the future, I’ll live it moment by moment, day by day, etc., etc., and whatever it is, is.
