Tim Fearnside, Boise, Idaho, USA.
Welcome, and thanks for checking out my blog 🙂
About me: I’m a husband, recovering lawyer, and father of two wonderful girls. We live at the base of the Rocky Mountains in beautiful Boise, Idaho, along with our neurotic beagle, “Majestic,” and four hens –“Polka,” “Gertie,” “Dixie,” and “Elyse.”
About my blog: Having been at this for a little over a year, some themes have emerged. Many of my posts have concerned politics, where I approach things from the left. I’ve touched quite a bit on religion, too, and its interplay with politics, most recently in a series of posts about my experiences growing up during the white Protestant evangelical movement of the ’80’s. Other topics have included music, the body positivity movement, the Syrian refugee crisis, and the great Starbucks holiday cup debacle of ‘ought ’15.
I’m a child of the ’70’s and ’80’s and a product of the rural midwestern “rust belt.” I find that my writing and perspectives are heavily influenced and informed by my generational experiences. While I have strong opinions, I try to approach blogging with civil discourse in mind, and would much prefer to bring people a step closer together than further wedge them apart.
Hobbies and interests include urban farming, art, photography, music, progressive education, and various outdoor pursuits. I am also working on a novel, with much remaining work ahead.
This blog is continually evolving, and I have no idea where it lead, but please check back in now and again. I will strive to make it worth your while.
Thanks again, and best regards!
