adventures at altitude

Exciting news: in January I will be catching babies in Cuzco, Peru, and attending midwifery classes with one of my favorite teachers. I plan to blog my adventures, so stay tuned.

And for any Matrona detractors out there, I leave you with the wisdom of ol' Robert Zimmerman:

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'.
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.

Seek the source, heed not idle gossip.


1. My sister, the educator, pointed out a misspelled word on this here blog. Duly noted, and corrected. Thank you.

2. Months ago I questioned the meaning of "natural" on a natural food store's in-house line of ice cream. This small chain is advertising its dairy to be rGBH-free. Yet the ingredients of Vanilla Ice Cream are Milk, Sugar, Cream, and "natural vanilla flavor". Ingredients of Chocolate are Milk, Sugar, Cream, and Cocoa. Ingredients of Strawberry are Milk, Sugar, Cream, and Strawberries. Nowhere on the label does it say anything about rGBH. I would love some clarification.
