Facing Fear

November 5, 2014 - 2:11pm
Just the other night I curled up on the couch with my daughter (who is an adult) and a bowl of popcorn to watch our favorite show, "The Walking Dead." I realized that also within that week we had watched some of our other favorites-"American Horror Story," "Sleepy Hollow" and "Gotham." We also love "Bates Motel" but that season hasn't started yet. Not to mention, we had gone all out for Halloween with decorations and intricately carved scary pumpkins. I swear I am not a dark and twisted person and neither is she. Really. We're actually pretty upbeat and sunny on most days. So, why all the interest in zombies, horrifying clowns, ghosts, headless horsemen and evil characters? As someone in my office recently asked me, "Why in the world would I want to watch something that scares me?"
