A New Start -- The Story's Own Place

I write the story of my eldest son's car accident. It is a story of miracles. It is a story of trials. It is a long story which may not find its conclusion until one of us comes to our end.

Until now, the story has been on my Xanga blog, mixed in with any number of other writings. For those who have followed my ups and downs in the struggle to put our experiences on pixels, it must be somewhat frustrating.

So, I am providing the story with its very own space. The completed parts will migrate here and each new section will post here at its completion.

Until the migration is complete, follow these links to read it:

I also entered a contest with this video.

After talking with Steve, I fiddled with the video some. This is the result. Which do you like better?
