ex machina

the eric update - day 1343: someday i'll get the hang of this sports photography thing.

i rectified the egregious error of not taking my camera to the "open skate" races. but as i was skating back after retrieving the camera from kris, bringing the camera to my eye, i missed catching him rounding pylon 2 and slowing down to give a big wave to his fans who were shouting "go odin! go odin! go odin!"


as they should be, the rules for racing in the "4 and under" age group are rather laid back. everybody is a winner, of course. technically he came in second place, "losing" by inches. but his "adversary" was older than him and pushing a chair.

who won or lost really became a secondary concern as he graciously accepted congratulations from the big kids on his way to the snack bar.

"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.
