worm hole

I have an underlying fear of space.

As a kid I’d have these nightmarish visions of myself becoming untethered from a spacecraft and floating helplessly into the vast black emptiness. How long would I stay alive? What distances would I travel? Where would I end up?

Even to this day, I get uncomfortable with wide open spaces. Sometimes just laying down in a really flat field causes me to grip the grass around me as if the sky might swallow me whole.

My love for trees is, oddly enough, tied to my fear of space. Not only do trees provide fresh air and visual splendor, they also act as barriers to the immense sky.

Something to grab hold to should I become untethered.
