A plump of geese

According to Wiki “The collective noun for a group of geese on the ground is a gaggle; when in flight, they are called a skein, a team, or a wedge; when flying close together, they are called a plump.”

So, I was minding my own business and standing aimlessly under the Oak tree when I heard an unfamiliar sound. Naturally, I looked up and saw a plump of geese :-)). They were flying in a A formation (minus the dash) and it was fascinating to see them fly together.

I observed for a while – they followed the leader and never got in each other’s way. They shifted sideways in unison but their wings never ever touched. It seemed like just by being themselves and doing their bit, they were effortlessly helping each other out (Collective Individuality?)

A successful marriage or any relationship should also be this way, no? We fly together side by side, sometimes ahead, other times behind – our wings never touch (Individuality), just by doing our bit we help each other out (Collective)?
