an open heart and a vulnerable neck

Today I found out something I knew but had forgotten or ignored, that people I feel threatened by may simply be threatened by me, and the threat can often dissolve if I simply talk to them with an open heart and a vulnerable neck.

Dogs roll over and show their soft underbelly to signal 'I'm okay with not attacking'. Sometimes works with humans too. (Sometimes doesn't, though, I guess, but I work it out as it happens, I suppose)

I think Nila is a reincarnated dog. She has decided that playing fetch is her favourite game. Fetch is not as much fun with a cat because they come back way too fast!
