Geese in a vee overhead is one of my favorite fall sights/sounds. But last week, a single goose flew overhead, honking mournfully. I know it’s just anthropomorphism, but it really sounded lost and sad to me. Save Save Save Save Save Save Save
Yesterday, walking into my critique group meeting, I read a newspaper article about a young paramedic who was killed in a local road crash.
