The Push of Normal

I’m still thinking through this idea. The main question is what is normal? It’s different for everyone, but the follow up question for me is – which direction do we push towards?

It seems to me that you either push toward normal or away from normal (whatever “normal” is).

Most push toward normal. Most want to be normal. If most push toward normal, most everyone one is there – sitting at normal. Normal is boring.

A few push away from normal. They’re out there on the fringe. They’re the punks. They’re the ones that influence, and they are the ones that start what eventually becomes normal. It’s lonely on the fringe. Most of the time you’re a weirdo out there – because you’re not normal.

So which direction do you push toward? Normal? Or Away from Normal?
