ex machina

the eric update - day 1521: sort-of helping mamma and poppi collect sauna stones.

our 10 year wedding anniversary is rapidly approaching ( on september 17th ) and we decided that it was a fine time to build the traditional finnish sauna that we've always been meaning to build. and you certainly need sauna stones for a finnish sauna, so we set out with odin's grandparent's and a cousin to an undisclosed location on the shores of lake superior to collect stones that had the most perfectist properties for holding heat and "throwing steam".

it was a tough job and odin sort-of got into the spirit of collecting stones, while taking more than few breaks to throw stones into the lake :-)

"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.
