I suspect there will be many small driving triumphs in the days to come. Hopefully no driving catastrophes. The goal for the next six months -- stop being scared of driving my car. We'll see how I do.
Before I go back to work, I wanted to pass along some info from Greg von Eekhout, a fine sf writer and apparently a font of knowledge as well:
"You may be interested to know that oxytocin, a hormone thought to be associated with maternal, social, sexual, learning and stress behaviors, is sometimes referred to as the 'cuddle hormone.' Laboratory animals who have their oxytocin receptors blocked have been shown to neglect their own offspring. And some studies have also linked oxytocin to the relief of nausea. So there may be a scientifically sound explanation for why being held alleviates your queasiness."
Aha! Thanks, Greg! That's much more reassuring than auras, I assure you.
Downing a big glass of OJ and going back to the e-Book reading. Hope you're having good days, munchkins.
