What does normal mean for you? An insightful, inspirational post on our new lives from Kathryn Jane.

Word by Word

  5. This was a great read, thank you for sharing. My hope is that, once the gleeful first rush of a vaccinated world fades, people will accept that things will never be the same and embrace the new.
