No Fear -- Writer's Poke #113

For Writers:

Octavia immediately knew that the bed was her playground. No matter how cranky she might have been, once I place her on the bed, she holds her head up high and offers me her toothless grin.

She doesn't tire of rolling around, and it's much more challenging for me to keep her safe on the Queen-size guest bed than on the King-size master. She recognizes the bed's edge, but not the danger of rolling over it. Nothing in her 11 month-old brain warns her about the potential danger of gravity.

Either that or she knows that I won't let her hit bottom.

What do you fear? Who or what protects you from what you fear most?

"The big lesson in life, baby, is never be scared of anyone or anything." -- Frank Sinatra
