Geese -

Elaine comments on the Geese Poem.

        "You know what?  At our cabin, there are wild geese that sometimes come and float on the lake.  Last time we were there, there were two big goose eggs on the dock.  But there was also a ton of goose poop.  Goose poop is big and smelly and profuse.  I think it is important in our romantic visions of wild geese to remember the shit they leave behind.  Shit happens."

I laugh.  Yes, shit happens.  It happens everyday, and each one of us contributes.  In Nepal, they put the yak dung on walls to dry, and use it for fire.  I think it is important to think of our shit as fertilizer for what is now to come.   Happy shitty day!!   We all have some of that.   : )
