Journal: the fear within

I'm not afraid of rain.

It's what's in it that scares me--tornadoes, flash flood, cars hydroplaning.

As a child, I was the same way about dark.

The dark was simply an absence of light. But the evil murderers lurking in it were harder to see that way.

Stephen King's It made clowns just as frightening for similar reasons.

Journal: Take something benign and make it contain something fearful.
