This is a famous painting...I'm not sure of the
Artist's name. If anyone knows, will you email, please.
I painted this for my Mother. It always reminded her of
my daughter, Lisa, who loves to chase the geese in the park.
A Few Things to Know About Geese
Next fall, when you see Geese heading South for the Winter,
flying along in V formation, you might consider what
science has discovered as to why they fly that way:
As each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift
for the bird immediately following.
By flying in V formation the whole flock adds at least
71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.
People who share a common direction and a sense of community can
get where they are going, more quickly and easily,
because they are travelling on the thrust of one another.
When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag
and resistance of trying to go it alone ... and quickly gets back
into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.
If we have as much sense as a goose, we will stay in formation
with those who are headed the same way we are.
When the Head Goose gets tired, it rotates back in the wing
and another goose flies point.
It's sensible to take turns doing demanding jobs with
people or with geese flying south.
Geese honk from behind to encourage those up
front to keep up their speed.
What do we say when we honk from behind?
Finally...and this is important...when a goose gets sick,
or is wounded by gunshots, and falls out of formation,
two other geese fall out with that goose and follow it
down to lend help and protection. They stay with the fallen
goose until it is able to fly, or until it dies; only then
do they launch out on their own, or with another formation
to catch up with their group.
If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by each other like that.
