SCARY ~ 52 Frames theme
Needing food to be airlifted, and dropped. Food created out of 3D printers.
Drug cars with guys selling in front of home. Afraid to leave house alone. Alone in elevators with unknown males. Hitchhiking. Hitchhikers. Driving two hours one way for weekly class only 30 miles away. Driving at night or day in heavy fog, or rain. Being lost in scary neighborhood at night. Bitten by a dog, and living with fear. Snokeling alone around the rear of a distant coral reef in Eilat, unseen from the shore. Being in a little boat, alone. Walking on an edge of a cliff. Driving on hills of San Francisco.
Scared. In Big Bear Lake, on a good weather day, I was too afraid to go beyond the middle of the lake to the other side. Years ago in Sedona, Arizona, scared, I had been unable to cross a stream walking in the water with my camera, and with tripod as a support, on an Arizona Highways photo group trip. (Thus, I missed the photo shoot). Alone on a log stretched over water on another Sedona "vortex exploration" journey, I could not cross over Oak Creek. A friend encouraged me to walk on the log. Yet, interestingly when confronted with a similar situation in rainy Topanga Canyon, where at night I could not walk across a log over water, I WAS ABLE TO EXTEND MYSELF and guide another fearful person over the water. We both made it to the party on the other side.
Finally, I trespassed my own boundaries.
Scary terrifying are the murders of Jews in Holy Land by knifing, running over by cars, bombs, terrorism with guns of innocent Jews, leaving behind grieving families, parents, children now orphaned, and students. Fear due to anti-Semites that teach their tiny children to hate and give them knives.
Fears that thousands of immigrants have for their safety trying to cross borders to freedom.
Fears that thousands of immigrants have for their safety trying to take boats to freedom and dying in the waters.
Scary that humans can kill animals for their own pleasure, and be proud of it. Whether or not the lion was loved and famous, or a giraffe was beautiful.
Scary that teachers, Scout leaders, clergy, police, and others in authority take sexual advantage of the ones whom they are in care of.
Scary to think about the world my granddaughter and her generation are entering.
