Well, it’s not exactly a blog. I collect my videos on great books and my writings on this website. I foreswear all social media over the course of my life and I have no reason to regret that decision. I enjoy engaging ideas in the public sphere, but I do not think it just or salutary to share my ideas without others taking a look at them. So I post my writings for on-line journals here. Blogging is too close to social media for me.
I married Amy in 1993 at 22 years of age and we have five children: Jackson (b. 1995), Travis (b. 1997), Sarah (b. 2000) Paul or Lumpy (b. 2002) and Mark or Biscuit (b. 2008) . We are Midwesterners, who were displaced to Idaho in 2000. While we love the lush Midwest and especially the beautiful Falls, we also have grown to love Idaho. I love reading novels (esp. Russian novels), hiking, golfing, and writing.
