DETENTE

Imagine two flocks of geese: The first flock -- the white-breasted -- graze on the side of a gentle slope that leads to a small pond. The second -- the dark-breasted -- alight on the ridge above the pond.


A guardian of the first flock raises his head, suddenly alert ---

Satisfied that a potential threat encroaches, he notifies his second.

And together they alert the white-breasted flock.

The threat is gathered on the ridge above them. But - they seem to be not too scary, Perhaps they just want a turn at the pond. So a delegation trudges up the hill to discuss terms.

They reach the top ---

And behold! A mob.

Despite differences in coloration, the first flock soon politely made room for the second. A lesson for us all.
