    I know about fear, and like pain, it comes in two varieties. Real fear, as Selvinskiy dricesbes, like a stone in your chest. And panic, like what I've been experiencing for the last few days and which crescendoed last night. I'm not sweating blood, in part because the rational part of me knows that this is going to be okay, and in part because I am finding grace to help in time of need. I guess that grace is fueling the rationality.
