ex machina

if there was background music, it would be suitably ominous.

as i stood teetering on top of a radiator i pushed against the lilipution-sized attic opening, sending a torrent of ancient detritus into my eyes, i wondered if this was the part of the movie where the audience, sitting on the edge of their chairs, yelled "DON'T OPEN THAT DOOR!" right before thousands of bats exact their revenge on the unsuspecting invader.

i mean, if starlings can almost take down a tree what's to stop a bevy of bats from felling someone who just happens to be dumb enough to precariously position himself on the edge of a heater while trying to operate a flashlight and a camera?

no, really, i'm not trying to get myself a darwin award, i just didn't want to go by a ladder. which, i guess in retrospect, is the kind of reasoning that ends up getting one just such an award.

"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.
