A graceful curve..

‘Id seen the migration plotted as a clean, unbroken arc from Texas to Foxe Land, imagining the flight to be as easy and consistent as the line, a graceful curve from one point to another.? But the arc’s grace was a fiction.? The snow geese were improvising their way from winter to breeding grounds, stage by stage, according to the cue of the season.#
