ex machina

the postcard project: appleton, wisconsin.

i've been meaning to get back to the postcard project for quite some time ( which, i know, will provoke guffaws of laughter from the long time visitors who remember that's what i say every couple of months :-) ) and this postcard of the chapel at lawrence university in appleton, wisconsin is a good place to start if for no other reason that it was sent by fellow preemie parents and flickrites "nathan's story" and nathan is celebrating his first birthday.

happy birthday nathan!

nathan's parent's probably didn't know that kris and i were married standing next to lake michigan on the grounds of björklunden which is a goreous 425 acre estate owned by lawrence university in lovely door county, wisconsin ( by all accounts it was The Greatest Wedding of All Time - seriously - just ask anyone who attended ). curiously, björklunden also has an authentic and rare stave church which some might remember is also the style of odin's Magnificently Metaphorical Birthday Box.

funny how life works, sometimes.

and yes, i'm thoroughly embarassed that this postcard closes with "Have a Merry Christmas!" gah.

"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.
