Shift

Sometimes you learn, or think you learn, something so earth-shaking that you feel as if the whole world you knew has shifted and become something else. And then something happens; somebody you are familiar with and thought was different says something so very much within their old, familiar ways that it makes you cry from the sheer normalcy–making you think perhaps things aren’t so different after all. And it’s partly helpful, because you realize, to your amazement, that you can still operate from the same platform that you always did with that person; but it’s partly surreal, because, despite their normalcy, you know that something is different.

Have you ever had a moment like that?
