No, religion is not a fear of mine.
For me, water can be difficult. I'm not talking water at the beach here. I'm talking about deep ocean water. There's a mysterious, gothic quality to it. What do they say dreaming is all about? Working out difficult problems in your real world? My most reoccurring, disturbing dreams over the last few years have progressed beyond forgetting my high school locker combination to some horrors of height. I'll find myself somewhere on a rugged mountain top clinging in an impossible situation on a ledge with no way up or down. In another favorite, I'll find myself atop a church steeple like this one and no foreseeable rescue in sight.
On second thought, maybe there is something to this religious thing.
I've left out real life fears like the stock market, retirement and losing my car keys.
Some days, I'm better off just not thinking.
So, beware snakes, getting shocked, ordering food in a foreign country or struggling through a bad tuna tetrazzini recipe.
Face your fears!
Well, sort of.
