I used to be afraid of snakes. Then I thought about it. They are incredibly beautiful, and have patterns on them. I love patterns. So I decided to love the patterns on snakes. I started painting and drawing them, and it changed my understanding of them. I used my curiosity and appreciation of one aspect to transform my relationship to them.
Now if I can just remember to do that with all the people I meet.
