Spent some time this morning before heading to the library at @museum_of_witchcraft_and_magic (finding extra interesting tit-bits for the @thefolklorepodcast next month) staring at the horizon, completely on my own. I can't remember the last time I went somewhere where I couldn't hear the constant white noise of traffic in the distance. And for the first time in ages my entire body had no tension in it at all. This part of the world always seems to do that to me. Utterly beautiful. If you're pregnant and can get out of the earshot of traffic and look at a horizon I wholeheartedly recommend that you do so. In fact, do it whether you're pregnant or not! But if you are, I *know* your baby will enjoy it as much as you do. No better medicine in the world.
