More than the dark, shadows make me uneasy. Always have. My shadow is my doppelganglier, my attempt to both escape and yet remain connected to myself.
Science aside, there's something disturbing about that.
I read once that those with autism are overly distracted with their shadows. Maybe it's the comfort of things in black and white? A comfort I'm not that familiar with, for I more-than-tend to see the grays.
"The only people I fear are those who never have doubts."~Billy Joel
