Day 3586: Scared

I’m scared about

  • the USA midterm elections,
  • the future of this country, and
  • the future of the world.

When I’m scared, it’s difficult to focus on the gifts of the present moment, even though there are many around me. I will take a breath and try to be less scared, here and now.

Are you scared by any of today’s images?


I’m scared of stupid people voting awful and greedy liars into power. If they do, I’m scared that we’re dead.

Here’s “Scared” by the Tragically Hip.

I’m not scared of any reactions you might have to this “scared” post.

Thanks for keeping me company when I’m scared — that helps!

  1. I’m with you, Ann. The upcoming midterms scare the bejesus out of me. Praying that saner minds prevail.

  2. Looks like Joan is not scared to take on a podcats, Ann!

  3. Some excellent humour there, Ann. You made me laugh!

    With regard to your fears about the election, I hope they do not materialize.

  4. i’m not scared that joan will soon have her own talk show, but i am scared of people who will not really think before they vote. maybe joan can talk about it on her show?

  5. I’m afraid of the same things related to our midterms, Ann. I like the whimsy in your photos today. We need to enjoy the season and not run too far ahead with our fears. I say this to myself several times a week! 🙂
