Ideas or experiences, perceived as fringe are likely more typical than suggested by social standards. Maplewood is a community which feels normal to those of us who live here but is, in fact a hub for those who are shattering social and racial “norms”.
We embrace a diverse cross-section of people and perspectives, but the ideas emerging from the community come from challenging and debating the areas in which we fall short; and as such teasing out unique approaches and directions.
Maybe you’re not thinking about normal ‘people’ at all! – maybe you’re thinking about a line of axis at right angles to a plane, standard deviation curves, maybe you’re thinking about geological faulting or the salinity of blood! Maybe your normal has been forever changed today!
