Yesterday, I was thinking about fear as I took these photos:
I was also thinking that there is a huge difference between fear and caution.
Do you see any fear and/or caution in my other photos from yesterday?
When I’m blogging, there’s always a ten minute window when everything feels OK.
- do something new, or
- look at the news …
… I usually feel fear. Since I’m traveling to New York City tomorrow for a week-long group therapy conference where I’ll be participating in and facilitating groups with many people from all around the world, I’m trying to transform unhelpful fear into helpful caution.
A doctor I know gave me this advice before I left work yesterday:
Wash your hands frequently, use lots of hand sanitizer, and don’t touch anything above your neck.
Don’t touch anything above my neck! How am going to put in my contact lenses?
I guess I can always wear my glasses.

Here‘s “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” by Robert Cray:
I’m afraid I’ll be missing a local appearance by the Robert Cray band because of my trip to NYC.
I look forward to expressions of fear, caution, or anything else in your comments below.
Thanks to all who help me create this blog with caution, every day, including YOU!
I think the media puts a lot of fear in our minds. It’s more practical to use common sense. I think it’s safe to wear contact lenses if you wash your hands first. I fear that there are no sufficient kits to detect this virus as there are in other countries.. The idea that Trump and Pence are in charge is of no consolation to me- But at the end of the day it’s al about common sense. Always wash your hands, and stay away from people who are coughing.Lately i’ve been thinking of people who test positive for TB. Just because one tests positive, the disease can be dormant.. Naturually, it’s always the fear of the unknown, I know.
