Little known fact, we
have in this language over 530 words that end in phobia. Can you imagine that
this culture is so obsessed with fear, that it has to have over 530 words to describe
specific fears? This brings us to the word of the day - Paraskevidekatriaphobia
(I would write a song about it if I could pronounce it) - the fear of Friday the
13th. I can't imagine why someone would have a debilitating fear of this day,
but there must be someone out there, because why else would they have a word for
it? Amidst this discovery, I also found 4 words for the fear of love
- Erotophobia- Fear of
sexual love or sexual questions.
- Sarmassophobia- Fear of love play.
- Malaxophobia- Fear of
- Philophobia- Fear of falling in love or being in love.
why the hell am I babbling on about Fear right now? Mostly because I want
you to listen to my song about overcoming fear .. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqwYiLsFpqI
also because it occurred to me today that fear is not such a bad thing. In
fact, when I first met the love of life and when I first when on stage to perform
and even when I sent out my first email to my new music email list, I remembered
feeling a little afraid. All our greatest moments of love and triumph, of
success and victory, of joy and liberation were somehow a beautiful dance with fear.
So while I may not have Paraskevidekatriaphobia,
I think all of us in some way have a tinge of Philophobia and maybe that's not such
a bad thing. I guess that's why we get butterflies and clam up when we first
meet our true love.
