This picture is a reminder that not everything that is abnormal is deadly. Normal is just a mathematical term to mean “average”. This is a picture of a tulip from last year, which bloomed with a little extra tulip on the right. It was a beauty and it re-bloomed this year, but without the floral side car.

I remember in grad school, my professor, David Galinsky told us that some things were “deviant but not pathological”. I know that my cancer does not fall into that category but for whatever reason, it is nice to remind myself of this fact. So to all you not pathological deviants out there, I salute you!
