The Change Is Just a Six-Letter Word Note Card reminds us that change is a part of life, not to be feared but to be embraced. Change Is Just a Six-Letter Word is a reproduction of one of my mixed-media pieces. I’m slightly obsessed with words and did an entire series on idioms in the English language. I decided to offer these cards on a larger scale since many of you have requested prints and cards of my photography and artwork. I am also available for family photo shoots. You may contact me here.

It was just another morning bike ride – or so I thought. As I pedaled along on the near-deserted boardwalk on the Jersey City side of the Hudson River (unlike the crowded and frenetic path across the river), something caught my eye up ahead. It was tiny, it was fluffy, it was waddling. It was a baby gosling. And it was all alone.
Mother Nature Shows up When We Least Expect Her and She Can Change Our Life in a Heartbeat
Last spring I only remember seeing one or two families of geese, but this year I’d seen several. And the offspring with them were all different sizes. Babies, toddlers, pre-teens and teenagers. This was definitely a baby/toddler.
She (I’m just guessing) was walking down the boardwalk making a tiny heart-wrenching sound and every now and then would stand precariously on the edge of the boardwalk, looking down at the water below. I held my breath.
By now, I was off my bike and carefully following behind her. It was one of the first really hot days we’ve had and every now and then she would stop and go underneath the bike or in my shadow seeking shade.
Her family was nowhere in sight. This surprised me because I know how protective geese are of their young. I not only didn’t see a family with goslings her size, I didn’t see any of the families I knew were around.
