#tbt to this unique moment of life while riding the train back from Machu Picchu last month.

Even though I knew it was a train employee dressed as a boar-headed clown, I still felt scared.

This Is life.

Even though I know that I will be ultimately ok, I still get worried about all kinds of unknown things.

Fear is part of life and scary no matter what.

Someone wise recently told me that fear signaled our desire to learn something new.

I love that reframe although I'm not sure how much I really wanted to know about this clown guy.

Perhaps I just needed to know that under the mask we are all really the same.
