New Norm

In the rush to return to normal, use this time to consider which parts of normal are worth rushing back to. - Dave Hollis

Yesterday evening I decided to venture into the Birmingham metro area to help Gary with a livestream he was doing. It had been a good couple months since I had made my way into the city so I decided to bring my camera along for the ride.

I wasn't sure what to expect.. would the streets be isolated, what businesses would be open?

Lets just say, parking was the easiest it's ever been for us. We didn't need to circle the block or stress about snatching up a spot that was opened. We had our fair share to pick from.

There were a handful of people to be found in small increments. as they seemed to be in search of what businesses were open and what were not.

In some small way, I really liked having the city to myself. There wasn't a lot of noise pollution and stress of being on the go as I often feel when downtown.

Everyone seemed to be just as confused as I was. What is open, what is not.. should we wear a mask and when is it not necessary to wear one? Can we dine in or is it still curbside?

We are all learning as we go along.. this way of living is new to us all. So it's nice to see the smiles and understanding of our fellow mankind.
