New Mexico will be fully reopened on July 1, and people are getting back to what some describe as normal activities. But how can we just get back to normal after we all went through—more than a year of heavy, powerful change? What about all the losses people suffered? Loved ones and friends are gone. Homes taken away. Careers and opportunities disappeared. The future you thought you were heading toward vanished. And your old self—who you thought you were—that person might be gone or different, too. How can we move ahead while honoring what has occurred?

In episode 33. we search for clues about how to carry our freshly transformed selves forward into the future. We find some perspective about grief and transformation, in this new form of normal.


NEXT WEEK: We continue our look at grief and transformation asking how do we do this? How do we process our grief while looking at an unclear future? We get some help from authors and experts on the topic of grief, and we continue to hear from people out in the world about what they are thinking as they move forward. That’s next week on No More Normal.



Marisa will be moving on from NoMoNo as she is about to begin an amazing opportunity. New Mexicans are going to be very well taken care of when it comes to local news and the things that matter. Never have we worked with a more brilliant, passionate, and dedicated person. This past year and a half of working closely with Marisa has transformed us into better humans. For our media partners and listeners of this show that we’ve all worked so hard on, thank you, Marisa, for everything.

We dedicate this and every single episode of No More Normal to Hannah Colton. We love and miss you, Hannah.
