    Here are my top 3 fears:
    losing kate
    being trapped
    water
    It’s a hell of a lot shorter list than it used to be.

      well, i must confess…some of those fears in my list are sorta tongue in cheek. of the ones that still affect me, almost all of them are losing their power as i begin to feel more powerful at my core. none of the fears are what i’d call phobias…i don’t have any of those.
      i’m curious…i understand losing kate, i think most mothers share this fear. i understand being trapped…both physically and emotionally…the thought of it does two things to me: gives me shivers and makes me angry.
      but what is it about water?

        Not sure…and it is fading. It has only been since Kate was born that I actually started washing my hair in the shower…I dinna like water in my face. I used to have LOTS of dreams about drowning. I still canna swim.

    Interesting list, darlin’. Have you had any fears fall off of your list over the years?
    Have you seen “A Series of Unfortunate Events”?
