I Ain't Afraid

Merryday Tarot ~ 8 of Swords

We toured the Natural History Museum in Salt Lake City yesterday, marvelous, took us from cells through dinosaurs through indigenous people of the region. One of the displays was a room with a clear plexiglas floor exposing a paleontology dig area underneath. This figure clearly shows my reaction. I was frozen, could not take a step because with my eyes I couldn't judge if there was floor at all, knew there had to be but my vision wasn't up to the action required.

My first reaction was to cry like a girly and run away, followed by anger because nothing scares me, nothing.

Keep telling yourself that... maybe someday it will be true. Anyway, today up to the Moran Eye Clinic, a partner in the worldwide study of MacTel and more tests to go into the general fund of knowledge. 


  1. I love natural museums. I'd say your reaction was based on survival instinct. They've done studies with young ones who could crawl and found they had the same reaction.

  2. I too would have been overcome with the fear of falling into the abyss.


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
