Mondli says it very well: in times of crisis you don't follow a normal routine. We're pretty far into crisis, we've just grown accustomed to its various guises. And is a crisis a crisis if it doesn't affect you right now?
There are crises aplenty in SA right now, but more important is the crisis of implosion heading towards the financial markets. It's important because once wealth is wiped out of the financial system, normal will seem like a faroff paradise world, where money had a meaning.
Even what we previously considered normal - the rat race, doing some or other activity to make lots of green stuff so we could by things and then run away to get more green stuff to by things we'd never have time to use - well thank God it's the end of normal as we know it.
