What is normal


Chet Raymo’s post “Strange” extols the weird strangeness lurking in every exquisite nook and cranny of our daily lives…

  • All great books are strange…Strangeness lurks on ever side. Strangeness leaps out of every pebble in the path, every wildflower, every spider web flung between weedy stalks. In the midst of the utterly ordinary the extraordinary abounds. Nothing is so commonplace as to be common…I hope never to loose the capacity to see the strangeness in the familiar, the curious in the everyday, the exception in the unexceptional.”
