Thursday Thoughts. You know the drill. I'll ask a question. You answer it and then ask a question of your own. The next person answers your question (or whatever question he/she wants) and then asks a question of his/her own. And so forth. The participation has been a little sparse lately. I know you're out there. Join in and have fun.
First, a little story.
You know when you watch those talk shows that show people with deep, dark fears which show the people freaking out about their fear with tears and screams and whatnot. Believe me folks, this is not fake. I have one of these fears. I have a fear of bridges. Bridge-a-phobia, maybe? Laugh if you want to, but it is not funny. The bridge in Tampa and the bridge over the Chesapeake Bay have driven me to tears and have caused me to sit in the middle of the car with my eyes clothes so I couldn't see them. I have always wanted to run the NYC marathon, but I'm not sure I can do it because I'm not sure I could cross the bridges. Two summers ago I went to NYC on vacation and walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. It was by far the most frightening thing I have ever done. But, I thought by doing this I had finally kicked my fear.
I took this picture at a reservoir close to home for my 365 Days project. I took several pictures while I was at the reservoir. As you can see from the picture, there is a pathway above the falls. I went to cross the reservoir to take a picture from the other side and I was crippled with fear. I literally could not step one inch beyond the beginning of the walkway over the falls. It's so funny and yet so sad.
So on with the question....what is your biggest fear?
