When a Bunny Makes You Think

AB281111-7089-4A2F-A0C4-191784270975

This baby bunny (Can you see it?) did such a good job going into a freeze when Watson and I came close today. The bunny stayed so still that Watson never even noticed the little guy.

What’s your response to (real or imagined) danger? Do you tend toward fight or flight? Or do you, like my bunny friend, tend to freeze?

What’s your response to fear in someone close to you? Are you attentive enough to notice it? (Watson wasn’t.) Do you exploit it or belittle it or push it aside? (I hope not.) Or do you acknowledge the fear and sit with your friend in it? Do you create space for your friend both to feel the fear and also to move through that fear to safety?
