I’m a feminist progressive in love with a woodsy conservative (and he loves me right back). We live in a small town in Idaho, and for the most part, my beliefs are in a serious minority.
I’m struggling toward a life of financial independence, sustainability, conservation of natural resources, health and fitness, and philosophical honesty. I’m failing on all counts, but the attempt is its own reward.
My battle in this life is against absolutism. I find it to be as poisonous to the American experience as it is pervasive.
My life is a journey, not a fortress.
