Fear of God, Maxfield Link for Holiday Pop-up

DAY OF RECKONING: Fear of God and Maxfield have gotten their holiday cheer on with a pop-up installation by the Los Angeles streetwear brand.
The store, located in the gallery space across from Maxfield’s Melrose Avenue location, is the site of the brand’s House of God pop-up in which Fear of God founder Jerry Lorenzo has created a church-inspired installation. Lorenzo and his team brought in a dozen vintage church pews, which face out onto an LED screen playing on a continuous loop about two hours worth of Nineties gospel singers in an effort to create re-create an environment akin to a Southern Baptist church, Lorenzo explained.
It’s about creating something with emotion first and product second, Lorenzo said of how the space was designed.
“I want you to come into the pop-up space and really understand and feel the emotion that drives what I do from a design perspective,” he said. “Fear of God is as much about rock ‘n’ roll as it is hip hop as it is sports as it is influenced by my faith in God. Last year we brought in a 1984 pick-up truck and really turned the space into this early Nineties rock ‘n’ roll basement. We

Fear of God’s Jerry Lorenzo on the Future of Luxury Streetwear

As much as Jerry Lorenzo operates outside of the fashion industry — he doesn’t hold shows, doesn’t present in line with the seasonal calendar and has no formal training as a designer — he’s managed to infiltrate the system by producing special product he believes is missing from the market.
He’s also managed to create and profit from an aesthetic that works in luxury settings and more mass environments — see the merchandise he designed with Justin Bieber and his collaborations with PacSun and Vans.
In a conversation with WWD style director Alex Badia, Lorenzo spoke about why he thinks his line has been able to break through and what he thinks the future holds for the luxury streetwear category. Here, excerpts from the conversation.
WWD: How did you start your business?
Jerry Lorenzo: I was living in Los Angeles. We have a Garment District downtown and you can make anything you want, whether it’s a couch or a long T-shirt. I was trying to find solutions for my own wardrobe because there were things I couldn’t find on the shelves and I figured why don’t I go downtown and make what I want. Before that I worked for the Los Angeles Dodgers and I

Let’s Not Fear A “Political” Awards Show – Let’s Celebrate It

2017-02-10-1486760814-4984387-agrammyaward.jpg

With the 59th’s Annual Grammy Awards coming up, much talk has emerged about just how the first Grammys of the Trump administration would go down. In a recent Rolling Stones interview, while the show’s producer expressed understanding that artists shouldn’t have to suppress their views, some organizers have expressed caution over performances and monologues that might take a stab at the Trump administration. With CBS paying over $ 20 million just to air the award show, it’s no surprise organizers would want the smoothest outcome. However, music was never meant to be smooth. It was meant to be gritty, reflective, and raw. A turbulent political atmosphere isn’t a setback to the Grammy’s. It’s a push forward for music.

Music doesn’t always have to be political. Everyone needs a party hit or a song that just hits other emotions – hence why albums like Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories” have won in the past, or songs like Duke Dumont’s 2014 banger “I Got U” were nominated. Still, political songs shouldn’t be worrying, especially since music’s marriage with politics is nothing new. Many political songs and performances have been subjects of controversy in the past, like Beyoncé’s “Formation” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright”, both of which are 2017 nominees, and both of which have allowed for heart-stopping past performances. News articles and panels have been throwing around the word “controversy” to describe these songs but in reality, these performances aren’t causing controversy. They’re sparking conversations – unfortunately ones that many people still don’t want to have. When someone comments that Beyoncé’s performance is praising violence against police, we shouldn’t be so quick to call Beyonce controversial. She’s not an attention-seeking celebrity. She’s an artist having a conversation with her audience and some people, angry as they were, joined.

Trump’s inauguration may have strengthened our politics-detectors but music and politics have been blending long before. Music was never supposed to be solely apolitical. Politics are the reason for classics like MJ’s “They Don’t Care About Us,” KRS One’s “Sound of Da Police,” and Janis Joplin’s “Women Is Losers.” It’s also the reason for modern performances, like Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s performance of “Same Love” at the 2014 Grammy’s, where thirty-four same-sex couples were wed – a performance that even got a reaction from the “typically publicly apolitical” duo Daft Punk that year. Some have been assuming a more political performance from Lady Gaga at the Grammy’s after her Superbowl show, which saw mixed interpretations. However, Lady Gaga was practically a mascot for the LGBTQ+ community when “Born This Way” came out in 2011. Music has always been depicting reality from the artist’s perspective. To some, the reality in 2017 is that we’re in a vulnerable political state and many of our ethnic communities are angry about being overlooked and systemically oppressed.

Celebrity Twitter accounts are only so far-reaching when it comes to activism. It isn’t necessarily a singer’s job to be a part-time humanitarian but we can’t blame artists for taking the opportunity when it arises, whether through performance or in acceptance speeches. The amount of people who probably care to listen to an artist list off names of friends, producers, photographers, videographers, and designers to thank is only so long. When artists use their few minutes of gratitude to highlight the issues that impact us all, it gets people’s attention, and for a good cause.

Ratings matter, and with last year’s Grammy’s garnering approximately 25 million viewers, it’s understandable for organizers to be keeping a close tab on the messages that might be sent out by artists this year. Still, the dignity of music and its musicians matters too. The fact that celebrities are tying their music into the issues that impact so many of their fans is valuable. When there are so many poor lyrics readily available in the mainstream music industry, why would we be afraid of truthful ones? Twenty-One Pilots, who racked up three nominations this year, have long been creating music addressing mental health. Though Chance the Rapper has gotten exceptional fame thanks to 2016’s Coloring Book, Acid Rap (2013) and other mixtapes contain commentary on life for youth in Chicago. Even Lukas Graham, self-proclaimed underdogs and nominees for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, have stated that the most appealing part of “7 Years” is that it’s not pretentious, and is actually understandable to the audience. We should be celebrating this generation of musicians who prefer to put out quality poetry instead of redundant verse, not fearing how people will react to them.

Just because we’re under an administration that doesn’t prioritize some of the political issues artists are singing about, doesn’t mean these issues all of a sudden become “controversial’ and we should be cautious about bringing them up. We should be celebrating musicians with political fervor. They’re exactly what we need in this fight.

Fear of God’s Fifth Collection

Jerry Lorenzo isn’t the typical men’s fashion designer. He holds an MBA instead of a degree from a fashion school, and he prefers to scour vintage stores and flea markets rather than sketch. He also waited 16 months before unveiling the latest collection for Fear of God, his cult label that has attracted fans such as Justin Bieber, Russell Westbrook, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.
In Fear of God’s Fifth Collection, which is the equivalent of a fall 2017 release, Lorenzo stuck with high school in the Nineties as his theme. This time, though, he walked across the hall from the classroom where the grunge rockers who inspired his Fourth Collection hang to the spot occupied by the hip-hop crew that also excels at sports.
“The muse is more of this high school athlete of the Nineties who, at the time, dictated what is cool in fashion,” he said during a preview at his studio in downtown Los Angeles.
Speaking this muse’s athletic language, Lorenzo introduced mesh and put a lot of attention on sweats, basketball shorts and jerseys. He also veered off course into punkish plaid pants with drawstring waists and unzipped ankles and pajama-style shirts and coats. He expanded his textile

WATCH: Valuing What You Have to Offer (Fear that others won’t)

You have gifts and talents to share… trust me on this. But doubting the value of these gifts – and the fear that others won’t see the value – can stop you from sharing what you have to offer… or from allowing yourself to be compensated for what you do. I hope this will help you more fully appreciate what you offer, which will help others do the same.

If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the “Tap Out Your Fears” series — which explains the basics of EFT — click here.

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

For a picture of the tapping points — and more info on EFT — click here.

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at www.TapWithBrad.com.

For EFT with kids, please visit: www.TheWizardsWish.com.

Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 Has Water Zombies So Yeah, It’s Awesome

SPECIAL TIP UPDATE!

Kim Dickens Reveals Answers About That ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ Premiere

There’s a big reason to be scared on Sunday nights, and it’s only partially because you have work on Monday. 

The much-anticipated “Walking Dead” companion series, “Fear the Walking Dead,” finally premiered on AMC, and it was intense. Things got started when Nick (Frank Dillane) woke up from a drug binge to discover that a bunch of people are dead and his friend is eating them. Realizing this isn’t normal, he runs into the street, gets hit by a car and winds up in a hospital bed, a la Rick Grimes – and the series gets underway. 

Image: MoviePilot/AMC

We’ve heard the companion series would be way different from “Walking Dead,” and the premiere finally showed us what that meant. While the original show has been a lot about cool zombie head shots, the “Fear” premiere focused more on the struggles of Madison Clark (Kim Dickens), a school guidance counselor who couldn’t care less about being sentimental, and her boyfriend Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis), an English teacher, as they try to blend their families in the midst of a zombie outbreak. (Great timing, y’all.)

The premiere answered a lot of questions, but it raised quite a few as well. For instance, while struggling with a zombie at the end, did Madison actually get bit? And why do Madison’s kids hate Travis so much? Plus, Travis fixes a leak and says he saved them $ 300. Would it really cost that much? If so, why didn’t we all just become plumbers?

Luckily, “Fear” actress Kim Dickens talked with The Huffington Post about the premiere to answer those questions and more:

There’s a struggle between you and a zombie at the end of the first episode. Did you actually get bit?

It doesn’t appear that my character gets bitten. That’s for sure. There’s definitely scuffling, as our characters are certainly naïve of the dangers of what exactly is going on. So we get dangerously close to them.

What’s scarier: fighting zombies or raising the teens?

I personally have not raised any teens, but I have been a teenager. I jokingly said my character’s training is that she’s been wrangling teenagers for a while.

Why do the kids hate Travis so much? He seems cool.

I don’t know if they hate him. I think it’s just sort of daily dramas that go with blending a family when you have teenagers, and there’s a new authority in the house and everyone’s adjustment to that.

Since a lot of the series focuses on Los Angeles, are we going to see health-conscious or vegan zombies?

They may have been healthy before they were zombies. But I don’t think they’re very discerning in their appetite. Or they are discerning but certainly not healthy. Our zombies are fresher because they’re less decomposed. It’s an earlier place in this outbreak. So our infected — we’re not calling them zombies or walkers, we’re calling them “infected” because that’s all we know — so they look different. They’re fresher.

Though you call them infected, on “Walking Dead” they’re called walkers. LA isn’t known for people walking a lot. Do you think that gives you an advantage?

[Laughs] Well, you know, you can get in your car, and you’re stranded in traffic, so I don’t think it’s necessarily an advantage.

Will we see any LA celebrity zombies?

Wouldn’t that be great? Or go see a zombie ruin somebody’s red carpet moment. I don’t think so. Not in the first season, at least. 

Image: YouTube/MakeAGif

What is the symbol your character’s daughter Alicia gets drawn on her arm? Just a spiral?

I don’t know. That’s between her and her boyfriend’s character.

While in the hospital talking to the cops, Nick says he doesn’t even know what viscera is. Can you explain to everyone what is viscera? And can we expect more big words on the show?

[Laughs] I would imagine so. Viscera. Isn’t it parts inside the body?

Yeah, I think it’s like entrails and stuff. Speaking of that, when you guys go to the drug den there’s blood everywhere. Why don’t you call the cops at that point?

I’ve had a lot of dealings with the cops and probably wanted to get to my son first. [Madison’s] son on the show is an addict, so I think her instinct was just to try to get him on her own rather than go to the cops.

Early on, Travis repairs a leak and says it saves you $ 300. Would it really cost that much?

I don’t know. You’re gonna have to talk with the writers because that seems kind of pricey.

If the zombies don’t scare ya, the repair bills sure will.

“Fear the Walking Dead” airs Sunday at 9:00 p.m. ET on AMC.

“Yes, And”: What Making an Independent Film Taught Me About Identity, Fear and Self-Worth as a Woman

In acting, the first rule of improvisation is to say, “Yes, AND”, the idea behind it being that a scene can only move forward if you first accept the circumstances around you, and then add to them. “Yes, AND” allows for collaboration. “Yes, AND” fosters imagination. “Yes, AND” instigates progress.

For a long time, my life felt like one “No” after another. I wanted to be an actor but couldn’t even get an audition, never mind an actual role. I was working four jobs and just barely getting by. I was definitely more “starving” than “artist”.

I was losing the “game” that is getting work as an actor. The truth is that I wasn’t trying very hard to play it. I didn’t like the rules. As a woman, I felt like I was expected to live up to an imaginary ideal perpetuated by the oversimplified narrative most female characters are placed into. I remember one particularly painful audition that required all the actresses to bring bikinis with them. Usually I would have fled from kind of request, but it was for a reputable graduate film program so, (against my better judgement) I went. I made it to the “please put your bathing suit on” phase and was then given a scene that required me to violently assault my scene partner. I asked if we could practice once or twice, just to make sure no one got hurt. Or perhaps I could just show my half-naked rage through my words? I was dismissed and received an email a few days later saying that I was “too aristocratic” for the part. I was tempted to reply “Are you sure you didn’t mean ‘too smart’?”

I thought getting an agent would help my situation, but was told again and again that I was not a “type” and therefore un-castable. It would be more accurate to say that I am not a “type” that fits into the mainstream representation of women. Where were the stories and roles that I identified with? I was stuck.

But then I got a text from my good friend, Will Sullivan. It read:

“I want to shoot a movie this summer. All improv. For zero budget. Will you produce and star in it?”

In that moment, the answer seemed obvious to me. YES. Had I ever produced a film before? No. Did I have any idea what this movie was going to be about? Of course not. But what did I have to lose?

So I said Yes. And it was in my power to make it happen. It was time to choose my own narrative.

We decided to make a film about relationships – not about falling in love, but about what it takes to make love last. Will and our cinematographer, Derek Dodge, wrote the story outline, but there was never a set script. It was up to the actors to create their own dialogue and define the arc of each scene. I had the freedom to craft a character who was in a state of change and therefore undefined by any mold. The experience was transformative for me, not only as an actor and first time producer, but as a young woman who felt like she needed to re-define her sense of self. It scared me, so I knew it was important.

My greatest obstacle has always been fear. Fear of imperfection, fear of being wrong, fear of failing. This project taught me that there is no better cure for fear than action. As we hurtled towards production, I oscillated between thrill and absolute terror. I had no idea what I was doing but I had to do it anyway. Everyday I woke up feeling like I was in full relevé on the edge of a cliff. The only way to forward was to jump. There were moments of soaring and moments of falling hard on my face. I learned, though, that even if I fell, at least I had found the ground. I could get up and keep going. Three days before our shoot started, I cut off all my hair. I did it for the part, but I also did it for me. While the deed itself was superficial, it symbolized the letting go of an image I felt I was expected to fit into. I was released from who I thought I should be, and free to figure out who I could be.

What started as a text message is now a feature film, That’s Not Us, set to be released later this year. Making it was a gift of self-discovery – as a leader, as a woman, as an artist, and as an imperfect being who still has much to learn. I had the privilege of being able to make mistakes and learn by doing. To me, that is the true essence of independent film. It’s about creating work on your own terms, exploding the mold, and saying “yes, and” to the opportunities that come with attempting the unknown.

That’s Not Us premieres at the Inside Out Film Festival in Toronto on May 23rd, 2015. Follow them on Facebook, Twitter, or visit their website at www.thatsnotus.com

Fear and Trembling

It has long been said (maybe the renowned sociologist Vance Packard said it first) that Madison Avenue frames its advertising campaigns around man’s conscious or subconscious fears. Fear is the catalyst. Indeed, man’s fears, insecurities, and regrets are what make possible the Art of the Sale.

Examples of fertile ground: The fear of not fitting in, the fear of missing out, the fear of driving an unworthy car, the fear of drinking an uncool beer, the fear of municipal drinking water, the fear of emitting “morning breath,” the fear of vaginas smelling like, well, vaginas. You name it, and a sharp-eyed marketer will find a way of making it scary.

Marketers, advertisers, and elected officials (arguably, themselves a species of “marketer”) not only exploit a human being’s core fears, they are devoted to inventing new fears–lurid fears, subversive fears, abstract fears–in order to manipulate us. After all, nothing motivates people more than fear, and voters need to be manipulated every bit as much as consumers do.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but politicians and the media have basically conditioned us to be afraid of everything: Young black men, skinheads, hippies, China, immigrants, socialists, Halloween candy, trans fats, transsexuals, melting glaciers, inflation, unemployment, labor unions, taxes, nudists, Moslems, having our identity stolen, and the prospect of living an “unfulfilled” life.

Indeed, compared to all the insidious and potentially fearful mind-trips out there, a person with a morbid fear of spiders or snakes seems almost refreshing.

I took a philosophy class once where we discussed the concept of fear. We examined it from an epistemological, psychological and physiological point of view. We also sought to compare and contrast modern man’s fears with those of the “cavemen,” asking ourselves, among other things, who had the most fears–those primitive archetypes or us.

Needless to say, it was no contest. Our prehistoric ancestors were afraid of very little, maybe five or six things, tops. Cavemen feared being attacked by wild animals, starving to death, freezing to death, being beaten to death by a stronger caveman, and falling into a river and drowning. That was pretty much it. The fear of being ridiculed behind their back for wearing an unattractive animal pelt didn’t even move the needle.

So what does this comparison tell us about human progress? Yes, modern man invented Science, Technology, Aesthetics, Philosophy and Mathematics, and yes, we put a man on the moon, and yes, we cured small pox, and yes, people now live more than twice as long as the cavemen did.

But despite those achievements, modern man has to acknowledge that at any given point in time there are about 300-400 things out there that frighten us. It’s true. When we contemplate it, we realize there are hundreds of things that keep us scared shitless. And how does that revealing bit of self-knowledge make us feel? Naturally, it scares us.

Our Seas of Fear and Love

Our Seas of Fear and Love


Our Seas of Fear and Love” is a romance-family saga set primarily in Maine but also in Europe, Boston, and the Southwest. Calm and stormy seas are emblematic of the characters, their influence upon one another, and the conflicts and love expressed among the four main characters – Brigit, Deirdre, Gregory and Etienne Moreau, a man who searches out art treasures to sell to museums. Etienne takes as his partner Deirdre, a dark haired, vivacious beauty he meets during World War II when she was an OSS member and he was head of a Maquis group. Brigit, an extremely attractive red-haired woman and nurse cares for Gregory wounded during the war and who becomes a well-known medical researcher. Gregory and Brigit have fallen in love and plan their marriage. Deirdre then sets her sight on Gregory, ignoring her lover and partner Etienne, and a conflict occurs between the two women. In the end, the effects of love triumph in contrast to vainness that damages self and others as the seas of fear and love engulf all.

Music is a selfless, living organism that grows and evolves, always giving and never taking, even in the face of criticism. Its evolution has spanned the history of mankind, awakening our auditory cortex like a desert flower in bloom. From tribal drum beats to Mozart’s piano concertos, music creates a space where simplicity and complexity are equal. One solitary beat can move someone just as easily and powerfully as a symphony. New York based classical composer and electronic music producer Adam Reifsteck is set to release his new EP Horizon on May 12, 2015. His studio alias, Sonic Fear, has been garnering attention in not only the EDM community but also the classical music community.

Receiving an M.M. from Western Michigan University and a B.M. from Duquesne University, Reifsteck’s fine-tuned craft has earned him several accolades. His original compositions have been performed by Attacca Quartet, Cadillac Moon Ensemble, Duquesne University Chamber Singers, Flutronix, Gaudete Brass Quintet, Mana Saxophone Quartet and Western Michigan University Chorale. In addition to releasing Horizon on May 12th, he is currently working on a new clarinet quartet commissioned by the Chicago Clarinet Ensemble. His compositions are a testament to the timelessness of classical music, keeping it alive within the millennial generation.

Though passionately immersed in the world of clarinets and quartets, Reifsteck has also found a home in the world of electronic music. With a background in music technology, Reifsteck’s transition from classical to electronic music was as seamless as a crystal ball.

Horizon visits many facets of the EDM spectrum. From dancefloor-ready beats and hypnotic trance to meditative and thought-provoking downtempo, Sonic Fear paints vivid soundscapes in a symphony of color.

In addition to being a classical-composing, electronic-music-producer, Reifsteck has recently launched his own record label, Teknofonic Recordings. Horizon will debut on Teknofonic Recordings as the label’s first release. Reifsteck’s goal is to create a place for other genre-bending artists to discover their sound, reach new audiences, and most importantly, be heard. 2015 looks to be a big year for Reifsteck as he is also working on a contemporary classical piece titled Fragmented Fractals as well as creating an interactive iPhone app that engages listeners on both audio and visual levels.

The artistry of EDM has been under scrutiny since its inception. Like all new genres of music, however, it has not only flourished in spite of criticism, but has evolved from it, finally becoming a respected style of music. The Beatles were once hated as angry protesters burned their records in the streets. Now they are considered the greatest rock band of all time. Sonic Fear is among the many talented electronic artists who are changing the misconceptions of the genre. His classical influence and ear for music is apparent in his mesmerizing beats and ethereal melodies. There is nothing but light on Sonic Fear’s horizon.

Sonic Fear paints a soundscape that is as sweeping as a velvety meadow and as pulsating as a lover’s heartbeat. Sound needs no rest, food, love or companionship to exist. It simply is, even if we are not there to hear it. It is when we manipulate sound into music, however, that it needs us to exist. Those who create music, speak the language of the soul. Those who hear music, keep this language alive.

We’re dying to meet you. Or, is that the other way around? XOXO Trailing along behind her father’s Gucci luggage, American teenager Lexie Carpenter comes to Tokyo in another move by the globe-trotting super executive. Isolated at her new school by a cruel clique of girls, Lexie is drawn to an ad online for an international friendship club. The Club. Welcoming, beautiful, sophisticated. Her new friends are everything she has always wanted. Lexie’s life fills up with glittering, A-list parties, French Champagne and Italian-accented romance. Too bad she doesn’t know there’s more behind those sparkling smiles than perfect teeth. Her friends are monsters. Betrayed and left for dead, her soul ripped out and divided into three pieces as prizes in the Club’s terrible lottery, Lexie is resurrected by a silver-haired, green-eyed young sorcerer, Julian Lake.

Lexie has no choice but join forces with the enigmatic sorcerer as she claws her way up the supernatural food chain. On the way, she collects an odd assortment of allies including a massive and slightly slobbery Shadow Hound with a taste for human flesh; a world famous rock singer who also happens to be a magical half-daemon (that’s a secret) and gorgeous (that’s not) and a very good kisser (th

With a Conscience: “Fear”

“Always do what you are afraid to do.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

I was about four years old. My father took us all to the “Whortekill Rod and Gun Club” annual clam bake in Hopewell Junction. We loved going each year. In this particular year, there was a race for all of the kids. I was a petite little ball of energy with no fear. None. We all lined up and waited for the “On your mark. Get set, GO.” I went. Boy did I…I raced my little heart out and in doing so, watched every other kid run past me. Everyone of them ran past me. I ran though. I never stopped and by the time I reached the finish line, I decided that I would dance. In fact, even though I was last, I danced. I thought my father was going to just burst with laughter and I ran to him and he picked me up and hugged me. It never occurred to me that I had lost a thing.

As I get older, I am less fearful and more restrained about what scares me. I guess age does bring with it some amount of calmness. The reality is that we all have fears. The question is do those fears makes us stronger or simply “more fearful?” Sometimes the very things we’re fear are good for us. They turn out to healthy and when all is said and done we wonder what took us so long “not to be afraid.” Change is scary. It’s always been scary. We fear success and we feel failure. So here’s another question…”Why do we need to be afraid at all?”

Are we afraid of what other people will think of us once we change? Are we afraid that we lose something in the process of that inevitable change? When people say that, “I am not afraid of anything.” Are they telling the truth or are they lying through their teeth to make themselves less vulnerable? When I was a kid, I wasn’t afraid of anything which terrified my parents. They worked very hard to instill a healthy dose of fear whenever possible because well…they were fearful something would happen to me. Some of us hide our fears very well and I wonder about those people because sometimes we need to revert back to that kid who was fearless to help us succeed. Fear makes some people competitive. Fear can make us want to try harder. It make us stop from being happier too. We will run away or not decide to make a move when we know we should because we fear failure.

I would be willing to bet that fear of failure is the one tried and true fear that we all would agree is the most powerful of all the fears we may experience. The older I get, the less I fear which is ironic considering had I kept that child-like fearlessness, I could have done the following:

  • Danced for the New York City Ballet
  • Written the real sequel to Gone with the Wind
  • Passed my driver’s test…the FIRST time.
  • Moved to New York City at 18.
  • Parachuted out of an airplane or perhaps flew the plane itself.
  • Appeared in the latest production of Tennessee Williams’ “Glass Menagerie” on Broadway.
  • Never, EVER, run out of toilet paper!!!

When I was four, I wanted to ride the horse over at the farm that bordered my house. The horse was 30 years old and his name was “Major.” I decided to grab some clothes line and grabbed an apple and some carrots out of the fridge and ran over to Major who planned his daily visit in the afternoon. He leaned his head over the fence and as he ate the carrots from my hand, I lassoed him and proceeded to figure out how I was going to climb on his back. I couldn’t — I was too small. Even the fearless know they have their limitations as my mother ran outside frantically when she saw what I was doing from the kitchen window. I would have to wait a little longer, I was told. Major could wait but could I? Perhaps fear creeps up on us when we’re not looking and if it does, maybe it’s more important to know we’re afraid rather than deny it. My mom had been petrified at the prospect of my riding Major but for me, well…I was up for the challenge. Love makes us fearful because we don’t want to lose what we love.

I hope I remember to be fearless as each decade passes and as I am faced with decisions that I am particularly fearful in making. That would be my wish for all of us.
