ex machina

the eric update - day 691: life's an only slightly polluted beach.

kris and i aren't really the regular beach going types. i guess we never understood the appeal of baking yourself slowly in the sun while getting sand in every nook and cranny of, well, everything. and then there's the fact that if you live in michigan, going to the beach usually means visiting one of the great lakes which as early as fifteen years ago were described as a hazard to human health and while the situation has improved in recent years they are still giant sinks soaking up livestock waste and mercury emissions.

i mean, am i the only one who is a little leery of wading around in an already polluted body of water while surrounded by thousands of the unwashed masses who are doing who knows what in the water? apparently given the turn out at the beach, i am the only one.

but i guess, as a parent, one must occasionally rise above one's own obsessive idiosyncrasies and head out to the beach with friends and family - you know, for the children.

and your children will reward you by showing you how much fun it is to eat sand.

"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.
