From a Corner of a Foreign Field...

I wasn't able to make it to last Friday's Scranton StorySlam - it was a work night, and I had no way of knowing if I'd be there in time to hear any of the stories. But I do follow their Twitter feed, and last night I noticed several tweets being relayed on their feed coming from someone whose profile indicated she had a blog. A quick click on the link and a lot of reading later, and I knew we had found a new blog that had to be added to NEPA Blogs.

From a Corner of a Foreign Field...

Eleanor Gwyn-Jones is originally from England. She came to Northeastern Pennsylvania through a series of steps that she describes in various locations around her blog. But she didn't stay - she lived in Scranton and moved out. Out to the city that never sleeps, New York City, Brooklyn to be exact. And she found when she was there that she missed the things that had made Scranton special to her. So she moved back.

From a Corner of a Foreign Field... isn't the first blog we've listed by someone who originally hails from overseas. (That would be Moving to NEPA.)  But it's always fascinating to see NEPA through the eyes of someone who didn't spend their whole life here. Eleanor is also an excellent writer and storyteller, which are always pluses when it comes to a blog. Be sure to check it out!
