Fear is part of our identity, it is our daily life and we all experience it differently. With it we grow up, and with time we either overcome or repress it. However, it is always present, it transforms into something else, it follows us in footsteps and penetrates our dreams. Fear has big eyes, they say, they grow where we meet the unknown and then we take parts of reality, like time, in unreal scales. Only when fear is overcome, the eyes grow smaller and the image becomes clearer.
