In Vicki Ableson’s second 30 Day Writing Challenge, we are supposed to write about what scares us. This is going to be an interesting 30 days. Dr. Kay is back on speed-dial.
Day 9 of Vicki’s WC2…
Woke up at 3 a.m…. no words… tried to go back to sleep but couldn’t… Tina is in Seattle… bedroom is dark and silent… miss the sound of her breathing… close my eyes.
The words come…. reaching for pen and notebook…
** to post or not to post? **
Man lived in darkness.
Man discovered fire… man learned to fear fire.
Man discovered religion… man learned to fear religion.
Man discovered different tribes… man learned to fear difference.
Man learned to reason… reason took away much of man’s fears.
The universe blinked.
Man began to fear the loss of fear… fear kept man alive.
Man began to forsake reason for fear.
Man returned to darkness.
