As a child it is possible to be afraid of mummies, Indians, skeletons, ghosts, dead people arising from graves, all rotten, giant spiders, small spiders, wasps, adders, falling airplanes, falling cars, the bogey man under the bed, a grizzly bear that can enter through the wall at any given moment, the sewing machine and a witch from a play.
Fortunately adults consider children’s fears funny and harmless. You can draw them and dress as them!
As an adult it is possible to be afraid of death, divorce, burnout, cancer and economic depression. They are dangerous since it is very difficult to dress as them.
