Growing up, I had only seen geese in children books and maybe on one of the Central Park ponds.  Later, when venturing out of New York, sometimes at one of those New Jersey turnpike rest stops or along a fast interstate,  I'd catch a glimpse here and there.

So, just blocks from home, in that massive empty lot destined to become exclusive living spaces for very rich people, to see those two swim together was like something out of a movie that had special effects.

Somehow, in the midst of an inhospitable world they had found, however brief it might be, a home.  Watching them, I too felt that, for however brief, I had too.
