I don't assume to understand why she was by herself, but lonely as she was, she found a big, ol' empty canvas to either sing or free the sadness from her heart.
I am so envious that a goose can stand out in the middle of nowhere and make a lot of noise. If I stood out in the middle of a cornfield screaming at the top of my lungs, the police would come!
Canada geese supposedly mate for life. If one dies of illness, is killed by a car or hunter or hasn't found their mate yet, the result is the same: they stand there and cry.
I don't believe they have the ability to reason through their emotions the way that humans can. Fellow humans will rally around us in the attempt to make us feel better in our sadness. If you are a person who has few or no friends, you may have to go through that loneliness by yourself.
Even though I am personally a vegetarian, I do understand that a responsible hunter will not just take one because they understand the effects of that. I have even heard of hunters who will hunt in pairs to make sure they take both of them. While it does pain me, it at least hints at a certain level of compassion.
Compassion and gratitude are severely missing from our society and our relationships. We would rather argue over semantics to make sure we are right or that we are heard rather than placing any kind of precedence over someone crying in the middle of a cornfield. We find great triumph in keeping score because we were taught that those points are actually worth something.
I have over 50 animals on the 'Idiot Savant' record because they are superior teachers. Animals don't start wars in other countries. Animals don't hurt your feelings purposely. Animals are not monetarily vindictive. If they are aggressive, it is most certainly from being abused in some way.
If you do not currently spend time in nature or with your own pets, I encourage you to look for the best life lessons there. Those lessons may seem dull, boring or seemingly irrelevant to your situation but the course of their lives are time-tested and true.
I wish I could live somewhere that has at least two of each. In 'Idiot Savant', the Juggernaut is Ian's 'Noah's Ark'. The animals don't live in perfect peace but they do coexist according to their original intention.
I really wish that we could get back to our playground and how things were meant to be. Our spirits are so broken and the greediness of the points system doesn't seem to be solidifying genuine contentment in anyone's spirit.
I would like to give that goose points for his or her level of commitment in either standing firm that she will find a mate (or swears to never finding one) however, she is just simply empty. No money, credit or points are going to fill the heart up with what is truly needed.
If you are reading this, I want you to know that I am thankful for your friendship and it is my hope that you will have a full heart.
Much love on ya!
