Love it (obviously)! “becoming dancer:” so simple, yet profound and touching, to this dancer anyway. The theme of becoming clearly captivates you, Rachael, and me, as well. Thank you. xoxo
After our conversation about flocking and dancers it got me thinking, and I realized that these geese (and probably others too) have so many connections to the human dance. Or is it the other way around? Thank you for opening up this new way of perceiving, Chloe. You are always such an inspiration to me. xxx
Whew! I am still waking up….my comment should read “becoming dancers.” S !!!
I’ve only been around Canadian Geese, and their dancing generally takes the form of chasing poor docile ducks and hissing at passersby. I’m glad that the barnacle geese have better manners! 🙂
If Canada geese are the big white ones then I know who they are. I have friends who kept them as pets: aggressive and territorial beasties. Barnacle geese seem rather sweet in comparison!
Thank you. The birds really were like the chorus in a ballet troupe. So weird I’d never noticed before 🙂
