Journaling Challenge: Day Four

The question for today is:
The best part of today?
Journal on!  (To give you some perspective, my journal only allows 4 lines, small ones at that, to write on this).  Start small and see where you go.  
And here is my response to yesterdays question:
What are you reading right now?
Spiritual Midwifery by Ina May Gaskin


  1. I've never read the book, but have read lots about Ina May and, in fact, just finished an interview piece with her in January's The Sun magazine. She's a truly fascinating woman.

  2. I've been reading a lot of midwifery books lately. It started with "The Blue Cotton Gown" by Patricia Harman, which references "Spiritual Midwifery" as her go to book. Thought that I'd check it out. I likes "Ina May's Guide to Childbirth" a little more.

    1. I read and really enjoyed the Harman book. If you're interested in midwifery in general, you might want to check out A Midwife's Tale: The Life of Martha Ballard, Based On Her Diary, 1785-1812. I found it fascinating not only for the midwife aspect, but for the historical details that were truly enlightening. (Pre-marital and extramarital affairs were apparently much more common during that time period than I had ever been led to believe.)
