ex machina

nope. there's no doubt about it. nobody is going to mistake me for the athletic type. i used to be more active. camping, hiking, and canoeing were all pursuits that i pursued with some regularity. but times have changed. the canoe sits hanging in garage. moving to the midwest doesn't exactly provide one with the types of hikes as the northwest or the northeast. spare time is squandered on house projects and other hobbies. and that's how the sedentary lifestyle begins to take its toll.

but this weekend, kris and i bought bicycles. nothing fancy. just some low-end trek hybrids. we've been going for rides and it's big fun. you won't see me entering into any long-distance events any time soon, but it feels superfine after a long day at work to jump on the bike and work through all the daily stresses and strains. the odd thing is that i really can't believe it didn't occur to us to get bikes sooner. so, if you notice fewer posts as summer stretches into fall, you can be happy knowing it's because i'm out getting a little fresh air.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
