THERE IS A MOUNTAIN
Donovan

The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is.
The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is.
First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
The caterpillar sheds his skin to find a butterfly within.
Caterpillar sheds his skin to find a butterfly within.
First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain.
Oh Wanita, oh Wanita, oh Wanita, I call your name.
Oh, the snow will be a blinding sight to see as it lies on yonder hillside.
The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is.
The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is.
Caterpillar sheds his skin to find a butterfly within.
Caterpillar sheds his skin to find a butterfly within.
Ah, my-my.
First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
First there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.
First there is a mountain

Is it possible to listen to this song without dancing?

Before you watch this, you are warned that it is a video of an intensely graphic, but beautiful birth. Don't complain to me if you object. I warned you. I want to share with a couple of people who I talked to about this. I thought others might benefit as well.

I can only hope my experience will be similar.

That was so amazing. 100 times more inspiring and reassuring than the scary birth videos I remember from my birthing classes, full of screaming women who were obviously wracked with pain. I hope your birth is as enjoyable as the one in this video seems to have been!
