ex machina

the postcard project: dumfries, scotland.

update: after further clarification the postcard project judges have officially ruled that this entry is from dumfries, scotland and not manchester, england as they originally thought.

we'll definately have to visit manchester, england since vanillasky ( and here ) has already sent odin one of our favorite postcards and a favorite shirt in addition to this lovely card featuring a castle that we presume is near manchester.

perhaps she can give us a little more detail about exactly where it's located so we start planning our england adventure :-)

words can't really convey how much it means to us when someone we've never met spontaneously sends a postcard to odin to encourage him ( and us ) to come explore.

i like to imagine that when he's older we'll have lots of fun sifting through postcards learning about all the locales trying to decide which place to visit next.

"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.
