as a child, I was concerned how others thought of me.
as a teenager, I didn’t care how others thought of me.
now, an adult, I realize they were never thinking of me at all.
I’m frightened of myself, in my relation to the world, in the same sense that i’m frightened of not finding the hole through a sheet of ice and drowning. I feel like I’m 72, and I feel like I was just born, and that’s frightening .
