A BLOG ABOUT BUSINESS & CONSULTING
I was born 1955 in rural Georgia, the first of 5 children to Theo & Agnes Farr. My dad was my best friend in life. He introduced me to God, nature and loving others. Mama was my tutor. She introduced me to reading, writing and organization. God, culture, heritage and family shaped our views about this life. Church, helping our neighbor, working -- just part of the Farr DNA.
We Southerners are an oral people. We teach as we walk about, everything is a life lesson. These lessons become stories handed down over the years to the next generation. This is a "yarn', a story with an element of truth and a life lesson. Each generation develops its own art form of yarning. My dad was the King Solomon of yarns. I only hope that I can make my place among our patriarchs.
My heart's desire and intent is that Arthur's Take will become a resource for you and your family as we navigate life together. My passion is to serve others. The Lord has blessed me with gifts of relationships, analytical mind, empathy, intuition and vision. I value and follow a simple formula called Q-R-S [Quality of Life / Relationships / Stewardship], which I'll elaborate on in future writings.
In 1977 I married the love of my life and best friend, Rachel. We grew up together and have known each other since childhood. We have one son, Anthony, who lives in Maine with his wife Trisha and our granddaughter Grace. My wife and I enjoy living at FARRBEE, our farm in middle Georgia, where we are avid gardeners and hobby beekeepers. When are not outdoors, I enjoy writing and Rachel paints.
So glad that you and I are connecting on this written page as I share topics and life-giving stories of fun, challenge and hope. You will find that my writings focus on a variety of endearing life lessons; wisdom from my Father; poetry and family stories "Yarns & Such"; the joyful rewards of beekeeping; the richness of our spiritual lives and much more.
I hope you return here often and don't forget to share Arthur's Take with a friend or two!
