Scared a bear will get me

Waiting alone for a ride to school when I was 4. And having heard the song “Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic.” That fear was still with me. Sometimes people are not sensitive to children’s perception of the world. It’s really quite practical. But they don’t want to bother with it.


I had three coyotes in my backyard this past weekend. We live right next to a large park and also on the edge of town.

I saw “Grizzly” in the seventies when I was about eleven…then went camping…very afraid of bears…had a delusion where I was tortured by a bear …


If you skin a bear it looks just like a human. It’s part of the reason native-Americans worshipped them.
