ex machina

it's strange to go back and ready what i wrote on this day last year . it doesn't really seem to capture how i think i remember feeling. trapped in a traffic jam, just miles from chicago's o'hare airport, pummeled by the sheer unbelievability of it all.

and those crazy, crazy nighmares that kris and i had a week before 9/11. at the risk of being branded a wackjob, i can still recall waking in a fit, wondering why i was standing in the cockpit of a plane, flying so close to tall buildings? why were we so close the buildings? thinking over and over. why are we so close? i really don't think we're supposed to be that close.

and why are they all cast with an eerie red glow?

layers and layers of profound inexplicability. impervious to explanation. that's how i remember 9/11.

"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.
