Everybody carries what they fear the most. It’s like a heavy box in a box that you put in your backpack and take wherever you go. It becomes part of you. It’s there, when you go down to the beach, under the sunscreen and the towel. You might go to Asia, but leave your laptop at home, because your luggage is full and who would pay extra to carry fear? It’s easier to ignore its existence and accept to live in a reduced space. After all, that little fear has always dwelled in that box like a cymbal-banging chimp, flashing his teeth and popping his eyes out. You packed it away and put it under the memories you cherish, so you’ll never have to see his face again, but you hear every sound it makes and when they ask why you tremble, you just say, ah never mind… I just remembered my old friend, Charlie. [András Gál]
