First Post Ever.

How’s that for a catchy title? Hello, I’m Jack Lewis, and this is my new blog.

Aspiring authors need an audience, I’m told, and in today’s world, a blog appears to be the platform of choice. “Write every day,” they said. Another good reason to start blogging. So, here I am.

The aspiring author’s audience needs something to read. I’m still working on that part.

A little about me: I was born and raised in the D.C. area, graduated high school and knocked around a bit before settling in northeastern Oklahoma. Soon after arriving, I looked around one day and realized, hey, I can go anywhere in the world I want to go, what am I doing here? When I checked my finances, the point became moot. Besides, I like it here.

The years rolled by. I spent a winter cutting and delivering firewood. Another couple of summers I was part of a crew that built storm shelters, aka hidey-holes. These days I work for a large utility, a cog in the giant machine. It’s a great place to work.

More years rolled by. I got married, divorced, and married again. After near twenty years, I think this marriage is going to stick.

I’m getting close to retirement age now, so taking up writing feels like the thing to do. I’d like to get a few words down for posterity, whatever that means. It sounds good to me, anyway.

Thanks for reading!
