The L

the lWhen I was little I never took the L train.  It was one of the most dangerous lines in the city.  Now the L passes through Williamsburg and the ride through the city is quite different.

But when I moved back to NYC it took me about a year to get over my old fears about the L train and ride it again.

That is the weirdest thing about being back – some of the things that used to really frighten me when I was younger are no longer as scary and some of the things that never used to bother me are terrifying.  I think maybe some of that is my age.  More knowledge and experience definitely changes my perspective.  It’s hard to get over old fears and sometimes an old fear is quickly replaced by a new one.
