Breathing Steven, x-ray eyes

you know, all you need in this pic is a spider, and you have my three phobias covered.

i faint at needles
i cringe at anything near my eyes,
and as stated, don't like the Arachnid.

great work.

I have a real thing about eyes ... can watch almost any representation of injury and violence against humans with perfect equanimity, except for stuff involving the eyes. Likewise, removing an eyelash is a major operation. My eyes start watering at the thought of it.
I think our old friend Sigmund put it down to classic castration anxieties ... which, as always, says far more about the crises in Freud's psyche than anyone else's.

Replace spiders with moths, Inc, and you have mine maybe. Spiders... Bet you're frightened in that job of yours, those summer nights of hand-sized female spiders fresh from eating all their boyfriends.

Eyes are exactly that: moist, vulnerable portholes. Freud was almost as mental as his highly-strung, overwrought upper-middle-class clients. He said a few interesting things, though. And gosh didn't he have an effect? America, for one, is still hung up on his devices it seems. Give me Lacan (who I have never read) any day.
