Fear

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer.

Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.

I will face my fear.

I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

And when it has gone past

I will turn the inner eye to see its path.

Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.

Only I will remain.

~Frank Herbert (1920–1986), Dune

  1. That’s a cool hobby! 🙂 This one is pretty darn creppy! Looks like it came right out of a Tim Burton movie!

    • HAHA! I would have to agree. My wife likes to collect them so it goes without saying that there are quite a few more creepy ones to go with it. I can’t complain though.. she gives me plenty of slack on my mountain bikes so I live with a lot of creepy dolls. 🙂 Have a great weekend and stay warm!

    • HAHA! Well the picture was taken for a challenge that a Facebook group presented to everyone. It was to take a picture of something you have at the house. My wife collects creepy dolls so we have quite a few around the house but this one has always been one of my favorites. I played around with the lighting a bit to get the final result but it got the point across. 🙂 It’s fun to try something different and step outside our normal ‘box’. Hope you have a great Friday and enjoy your weekend!

    I love creepy dolls! That one your wife has is really special. My husband doesn’t celebrate my interest in creepy dolls. 😦 He wants them out of the house. So does my first grader. Anyhow, nice picture of the doll!

    • Thanks! My taste goes more toward the fantasy – dragons, gargoyles, medieval figures – but I also enjoy horror or scary stuff as well. I guess you could say we have a wide variety of objects that inhabit our house but I enjoy having them around me because they all instill a certain memory that is fun to visit. 🙂 I went as far to make a creepy doll for my wife’s birthday one year and it turned out fairly well. She liked it at least. 🙂 Have a great week!
