Circle the Wagons

Once upon a time, there was this blogger known as Dynamo Dad.  He was one of the backbones of the early ALI community.

It has been one year since the world lost Alex, and it is a much darker place without him — without his art, without his energy, without his words.

Around the world, people are doing such cool things to remember him.  I am going to remember him as I first met him online — as Dynamo Dad — part superhero, part-all-too-human.  I am wearing my Superman t-shirt in his honour today.

His wife is getting through this day by putting one foot in front of the other during this very difficult anniversary.  Please circle the wagons around Vee at Trois Little Birds.  Show her your enormous love by surrounding her with good thoughts.  Even if you don’t personally know Vee and never knew Alex, you can still go over and leave her these words: “I’m abiding with you.”  Let her know that she is not alone; that the whole world is remembering him with her.

OH Mel, my heart is abiding with you and Vee today.
Much love to both of you.

I couldn’t figure out how to post on her blog but wanted her to know I’m thinking of her today. Thank you for sharing with us and for honoring his memory. Life is precious and you make us think and feel so much more deeply. Thank you. Hugs to you…

I started reading her blog this morning start to finish. I am blown away. Thank you for passing it along and consider the wagons circled!

Oh WOW Mel, thank you so much. I woke up to an inbox filled with beautiful comments. Alex would LOVE that T-Shirt it’s super cool, just like you. Thank you for remembering him, he would really be blown away by blogland at the moment, just like I am. xx

It’s just incredible to see the ways in which so many lives have been touched by one Dynamo Dad. It was truly an honor to share his beautiful work with the people of Los Angeles this last week. Thanks for including it in your post.

HOW COULD I HAVE MISSED THIS POST? Alexandra (above) emailed me the link.

Your T-shirt made me cry. I never knew about “Dynamo Dad.” I only knew him as Vee’s hubby Alex XOX

Funnily enough, I found Max before I found Vee, when Hubby and I were looking for others out in infertility-world who were dealing with Azoospermia. Dynamo Dad postings eventually pointed me to his dear wife Vee’s blog and the rest is history. I hope that one day, Vee’s little Boo and our Petite will get to meet each other, but even if it doesn’t happen, Vee and I will forever have an amazing friendship. I raised a glass for Max the other day, and I have been thinking about Vee and Boo all week. Thank you for directing your readers her way; I know it means the world to her!
