About Us

Hello and welcome to Far From Normal. This blog is the recollections of a family that grew up in “interesting times.” There’s an ancient Chinese proverb – some call it a curse:

May you live in interesting times.

Like it or not, we lived in very interesting times.

By sharing memories, anecdotes, and lessons learned from our experiences – the good, the bad, and the ugly – we hope to start a conversation with you. A conversation where you can share whatever thoughts you have on what we have shared; and where you can also share any experiences, anecdotes, or lessons learned yourself.

All in a safe, open, and honest environment. On this site, some of the names have been changed to protect the innocent (and the guilty), but the cold, hard truths behind every story are accurate insights into experiences our families have had.

So, in closing, thank you for visiting our site. Please feel free to look around, and drop us a note if you have something to share.
