Ha! Briefly… yesterday, I sat with Cobra wrapped around me. I have a photo but can’t scan it. I was practising to see if this might be a good job for me…. coaxing people to have their picture taken with a snake for only 5 euro. (more in summer, of course) I’d be good at this. I could talk to people about fear – and if they let go this fear, it allows for other exciting adventures that are simply waiting until there is ‘room’.
And then I remembered that I am afraid of snakes. I guess not so much anymore. It was a bizarre experience… especially the strength of the snake and the fact that he/she kept bringing her face closer and closer to mine.
And of course, there’s the motorcycles… which I am not longer afraid of.
And who knows why I got to have those moments of fear with the creepy guy waiting for me? Or perhaps not fear as much as extreme caution? I got over that quickly.. in fact forgot to be ‘concerned’ at all the next night.
And so I get to contemplate fear…. It is such a big energy that can keep us from moving forward, or perhaps sometimes propels us forward…. but hey, that’s a whole article I could write. And now, I”m going to play in the waves.
