Hi, my name is Jim Macdonald, and I have an odd assortment of interests. In no particular order, I love Yellowstone, I am an anti-authoritarian activist and organizer, and I have a background in philosophy, having taught at the college level. My blog has a lot more links to my writing and my other Web sites. In Jim's Eclectic World, I try to give a holistic view of my many interests. Often, all three passions show themselves interweaving in the very same blog. Anyhow, I think it's a little different. But, that's me. I'm not so much out there, but taken together, I'm a little unusual.

    The Magic of Yellowstone - after almost 3 years, new life




    The Magic of Yellowstone is back...well, sort of. In October 2005, a website that I used to work on almost every day through March 2003 (wonder what started in March 2003), had virtually disappeared because of my anti-war activism. In fact, I had managed to lose the domain name for yellowstonemagic.com due to sheer neglect. I noticed just in time to win the domain name back in an auction. This weekend, I've begun working on it again, starting with a long process of fixing dead links.

    I've added a little bit of new material, fixed a lot, but there's still a ways to go.

    But, in my future, I will be in Yellowstone, and this site will be back. In the meantime, I hope at least to maintain the site, and before I ever move to Yellowstone and take my activism there, I am going to re-learn the issues and the world, a world I kept in touch with through my Yellowstone Newspaper.

    Anyhow, Yellowstone has been on my mind gnawing on me since my trip in May 2005. I hope to go again this year. As fulfilling and exciting as Washington, DC, has been, I don't think that I will fulfill my call as an activist until I go out there and connect my activism back to the world's most special place. War, militarism, civil liberties, will be one with the plight of the Buffalo, of the Park itself. Perhaps, I can find a niche, a collective of people who will work with me out there, or maybe there's a group already doing everything I'm about...I mean, not just protecting buffalo, or lobbying to keep snowmobiles out, but out there seeing the connections.

    Yellowstone, you are my home, and I cannot wait to get back to you.
