Embracing Our Fear

by Ghani Kunto

I remembered being scared shitless the first time I saw the movie It.  Of course, I was probably only 10 years old at the time, but that movie got me scared of clowns.

But that movie also made me look for Stephen King novels.  It’s funny how some things in life could scare you and attract you at the same time.

Stephen King would understand this sentiment.  Apparently he’s afraid of the dark.

I’ve also read that Edgar Allan Poe was also afraid of the dark.

It’s amazing how embracing the things that we fear could actually inspire us to create great things
