My friend Kim posted this picture on Facebook. I've shared it because it's thought provoking.
And I did a little research and discovered Ellen Goodman (born in 1941) is an American journalist and Pulitzer Prize winning writer. She is also a speaker and social commentator noted for being one of the first women in the United States to discuss women's rights openly. Interesting. Not very normal….
And just because I am not what many people call 'normal' I looked up a dictionary definition… apparently insane is an antonym of normal. (That seems a bit harsh.)
Normal is many things: One of them being a town of central Illinois north-northeast of Bloomington. It is the seat of Illinois State University (founded 1857). Population: 50,700.
After reading all that - I'm cool with some of my bits being normal and my head being one of the antonyms. Haven't decided which one yet.
