Day 3225: What scares you?

What scares you, on this day before Halloween, 2021?

What scares you in today’s images?

Enemies scare me and, honestly, so does candy corn.

What scares me is how scared I can become about so many things. What helps is knowing I have survived so many things that scare me.

When I searched YouTube for “what scares you?” I found What Scares Me That Doesn’t Scare You.

I hope leaving a comment doesn’t scare you.

I am grateful for everything that doesn’t scare me, including YOU.

  1. Germs, hateful people, guns, hateful people with guns, The Last House on the Left 1972 by Wes Craven, Pet Sematary by Stephen King, Silence of the Lambs and The Supreme Court

  2. mean people, clowns, and dentists. I finally found a compassionate and gentle dentist, but no such luck with clowns or mean people.

  3. Joan’s on-the-ledge strolls scare me a tiny bit, Ann, when I put myself in the cat’s view!

  4. It would scare me to say what scares me, here, but I am not scared for Joan, on her ledge of freedom.

  5. puella33

    Greed, because it makes people hateful. Have a nice day Ann

  6. I found the video “What scares me that doesn’t scare you” very sad. Sad for all concerned, sad for society in general!

  7. When the movie Poltergeist came out in 1982 the tag line was “It knows what scares you.” Zelda Rubinstein, who was in that movie, was an early AIDS activist, fighting the disease and prejudice around it. She was shunned by Hollywood because of her activism and didn’t work for a full year. Eventually people started to understand that AIDS affects all of us, but the cruelty of people still scares me.

  8. ‘I love the ‘Mouse Hunt’ by Carno.
    I’ve seen Joan (and probably Harley also) stand by that staircase and they remind me of the Zarathustrian rope-walkers by Nietzcshe. In line with your title of ‘what scares you’:

    “Man is a rope, tied between beast and overman—a rope over an abyss. A dangerous across, a dangerous on-the-way, a dangerous looking-back, a dangerous shuddering and stopping. What is great in man is that he is a bridge and not an end: what can be loved in man is that he is an overture and a going under. I love those who do not know how to live, except by going under, for they are those who cross over.” – Friedrich Nietzcshe
