Star Wars Episode VII

Are you listening, Disney people?

Here is the premise for the next Star Wars movie:

Thirty years of peace and security in the galaxy.  The ways of the Jedi have been all but forgotten.  Luke Skywalker, in order to put food on the table, has returned to the business of moisture farming.  He will occasionally use his light saber to cut a ribbon at a super market opening to make a little extra money but that is as close as he comes to the excitement of the old days.  His life now consists of just trying to make a living, counting his pennies and nickels and dimes.  Just hanging on.  Quiet desperation.

The problem is his son.  Luke wants him to learn moisture farming so he will have a way to make a living when he grows up but his son wants nothing to do with it.  He wants adventure and excitement.  Lately he has been hanging out with the strange old man who lives out on the other side of the dune sea.

But this man is no Jedi.  He is a Sith.  And Luke will find that he must return to the ways of the Jedi to rescue his son…

From the dark side…

Of the Force.


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.
