An Added Kick To Life
Some dogs show me a part of their personality with the kick of their back leg. Maybe it’s not exactly the “personality” they are showing.
As I follow a dog on the trail I notice the right side of the back kick of its leg is a bit askew from the direct kick of the left.
While she runs it seems a handicap, as the imbalance lists her to one side, yet consistently compensating, her front paws keep her on course. It gives a “cuteness” to her personality. A bit more energy than most. An extra kick to life.
Then, I wonder what wounds exactly HAS she integrated? What IS she compensating for? Or was she born this way? Whatever the answer is, I think it has to do with much more than projecting a “cute” disposition into the world.
I notice the integrated, and not so integrated, wounds in myself. I don’t have words to share with you about them.
Though, I can tell you, like the pup, they are more than “cute”.
