Boomer’s muses “What do you find scary?”

So the question of the week (which may actually in fact turn into the question of the month) is what do you find scary? what frightens you? What is your biggest fear? In all fairness I will tell you a few of mine. I first of all want to state that we all have phobias. What they are, and whether we even face them, is part of the reason I am writing this post. I am also going to talk about it on my radio show later blogtalkradio.com/ramblinman. 

So for me my biggest fear (I do believe that almost all men have this one) is that I will spend my golden years alone. My kids will be off in their own little worlds, and there will be no one there to share my time with. This scares me most of all I do not want to end up like certain members of my family. They are actually oblivious to there faults and therefore blame others for their lack of ties to the family.

This next one is a bit trifling to me, but I want to put it in here because I want others to see that nothing is too small to talk about. No matter how silly you may feel about it, it is worth getting off your chest. I have a fear that I will die in some remote or secluded area or a place where no one would ever think to look. People will think I just decided to take off with no explanation, and spend the rest of their lives wondering how I could do that. So right here and now…to my kids especially…if something does go wrong and you can’t find me or don’t hear from me I wouldn’t just disappear. (this is actually the fear of crawling under the house and getting bit by some poisonous spider and dying right there. My ex would have thought I just took off without saying good-bye all that time not knowing my lifeless body was underneath her). It is funny because as many time as I did get under the house I never ran into any thing like that. As many times as we got infested with Black Widows they were always in the garage, along the outside of the house. A couple of them actually made it inside, but not for very long.

One of my scariest experiences came when I was a young lad. I was sleeping and I dreamt there was i burglar in my room and he was robbing my strong box. I never had a strong box, but in your dreams a lot of things are possible. Anyway I woke up and I swore I could feet his knife in my back. I didn’t turn over for quite a while, probably just a few minutes but it felt like an hour. I finally decided I didn’t really here anything and if he was really there he was gonna cut or stab me i had to turn around. Of course I found nothing and felt relief and silly all at the same time.

So anyway folks that is me, don’t be scared tell me what it is that frightens you. You can log in to the show at the aforementioned web site or you can actually call in and I will put you on the air that number is 323-443-7258. I would really love to hear form you!!

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
