It's that time again.  Time for the Smeared and Smudged Member Blog Hop.  Above is the list of fabulous blogs to visit for this hop.  The hop goes live Friday 04/13/12 at 9am PST.  The theme for the hop is 
"What are you scared of?"

I had a hard time with this which surprised me because I suffer from anxiety and have even had full blown panic attacks.  You would think there are thousands of things I'm afraid of.  Rather than thinking of the "What", I decided to think about the "Why".  Whenever I have a panic episode, I feel like I'm going to die which then makes the panic intensify.
I concluded that I must be afraid of death.

Here is my creation:
(click image to enlarge) 

I used a fabulous image from Ike's Art
 I colored the image digitally and added a border.  
I decided to keep my project simple as I think the image speaks for itself.
This is my fear.  Death.
I have always felt like I will die young.  Hopefully this doesn't turn out to be true.  I am so afraid that I will die before I realize my dreams.  There is so much I want to do before I leave this Earth.

I read a quote that I like:
Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life!

Thanks for stopping by!
