The First Week

It’s been a week.  My first post was two or three weeks ago but the real beginning was last Tuesday.  That was when I determined that I would post daily for at least a week.  I missed one day but I posted twice yesterday so that was seven posts in seven days.  Two of my posts were things I had written a while back so those could be considered cheating I guess.  But I still consider the week a success.  None of my posts were just random grabs from the internet.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that.  Not that I would not do that in the future.


There are some sustainable topics that emerged from this first week (and one I have in mind that I didn’t get to):


  • Movie of the week
  • Book of the week
  • Quote of the week


And I have some categories that are good foundations for sustainable topics:


  • Blogging
  • Writing


Of course the challenge is to see how long I can post every day.  I know I will be out of pocket at times.  When we go home to see the kids and grandkids I won’t have time to write something and post it.  But I can catch up when I get back home.  And the content is important.  It has to be something original and meaningful.  Meaningful includes the nonsense I write for time to time.  Because that’s humor and that counts.  At least I call it humor.


So here goes.


About Angus Lewis

My wife and I lived our whole lives in Arkansas until ten years ago. We moved to the Kansas City area in 2011 (a job change). That was the reason for the 'From a Far Country' title. Our children and grandchildren were in Arkansas. Six months ago we sold our house and bought one in Sherwood, Arkansas and my wife moved back down here. Two weeks ago I retired and moved back too. (I'm probably going to try to find something part time to keep me out of trouble.) So maybe the 'From a Far Country' title is not so much of a fit anymore. But I think I'll stick with it. I'm still not home. Not yet. The Bible says we are all strangers and pilgrims here. Our real home is with God and some day we'll be there. We'll be home.
