“You are in a spot that is absolutely safe, with one exception: the danger created by your own fear.” – Paulo Coehlo

This timelapse was one of my first attempts with the GoPro. It was taken from my favorite sunset spot, my parent’s backyard in California. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the concept of fear, and what it means to be afraid. Living in a new place may often push you to fear being alone, or to fear that being as happy as you were is no longer attainable. But I think that Paulo summed it up really well in “The Pilgrimage,” that fear is personal and purposeful, but often times unnecessary. We focus on what’s wrong or what’s altered in our lives and that creates fear. But maybe if we simply embrace our fear it can serve us. For all of you Doctor Who fans out there, the Doctor summed fear up amazingly as well. Check it out! Fear is a superpower.
