We need no plane to enjoy the exotic — this one, as close as a nearby lake. Like most of Nature, he provides a silent yet efficient sermon.

The Inherent Idiocy of Group Think

Humans, sadly, adore Group Think. See an “other,” cross the street—courtesy of an internal danger signal hammered by nonstop biased news anchors. Examples? Two quickies:

✦︎ Timothy McVeigh brought down the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, killing 168 people and injuring over 680 others. No one thereafter avoided short skinny white boys with a buzz cut walking in their direction.

✦︎ A slew of acne-plagued teenage misfits opened fire on classmates, killing and maiming scores of innocents. No resulting group think. The munchkin killers’ “complexion for protection” (nod to Paul Mooney) instead unleashed (the knee jerk complexion-generated) recognition of an aberration.

Nature’s Admonitions

Like people, all Canada Geese are NOT the same. Each personifies uniqueness. Respect—and celebrate—differences!

Nature provides a wealth of deep life lessons, for those who look beyond the mere surface of things. This Canada Goose bears the markings of his siblings, but in a different manner. Like his siblings, the sheer beauty of his countenance arrests one’s breath. He may belong to an easily identifiable group, but he possesses his own traits.

Nature. This woman’s preferred church. Teaching. Preaching. As usual.
