Lessons From Geese 1/7/14

Flashback 2012: I was happy to wake up this morning and see snow. This is ivy looking lovely with the snow and sun shining on it. We really need the snow! Saturday, January 7th

Today is Tuesday and it seems that the photo theme was geese and oak leaves.  There are a couple of tall, thin bush like oak trees that still have leaves, though most of them are brown, at my place of temporary employment.  I decided to focus on the little bits of color I could observe.

I decided to try and find wise words about geese and was amazed to find a rather well known talk/presentation.
