i read a few articles the other day when i was researching for a metaphor. yep, you do research metaphors, because you certainly wouldn't want to use one out of context. nobody would get it. or they would know you didn't know what you were talking about.
at any rate, i read about geese and learned a few things i didn't know
before. geese aren't silly at all..in fact, they're quite
intelligent. they have practice flights in september, before the
real thing in october...the V formation is tactical. the lead
goose breaks through the wind resistance, making flight for the
formation easy. when the lead bird tires, he falls back into
formation and another takes its place. but what really caught my
attention was...when one goose falls from the formation because of
injury or illness, two others accompany that bird and stay with it
until it can fly again, or until it dies. they don't leave it
sounds like a family, doesn't it?
