Go to the Birds and Consider Their Ways
I took a walk today to the nearby reservoir. I passed a few geese along the way and took their picture. I admit that the picture is unimpressive. I couldn't even get them to form a straight line.
When I got to the reservoir I saw a great gaggle of geese leaving shore and paddling out into the reservoir.
After passing a great colony of gulls that were standing on a thin sheet of ice, the geese formed a long brown band that stretched part way across the reservoir.
The gulls formed a separate but equally impressive band of white. Most of the gulls were taking a nap.
Go to the birds, thou stressed-out corporate drudge, and consider their ways! They enjoy company and they value a midday nap.
