For the first time in a week, my house is empty and very quiet. I had two guests for the last week, and contrary to my nature, I enjoyed it. I generally become rather fussy about my space and time, but I suppose I had enough space and independence that I felt that it was not a hindrance or annoyance in any way and in some strange way feel a bit sad to resume the normal routine.
I have not been to Oslo since the attacks happened last week and have just been working from home.
Is what I move forward with now really "normalcy"? Can we not change the things that seem normal to us from one thing into another?
