Dear LYTERS ⚡️
We’ve had some visitors at the BIOLYTE Headquarters recently.
Two families of geese: a Parent goose and it's two babies 🐥🐣🐣 and an adult male and female 🐥🐥.
We moved into our new space just about a year ago today, and I’ll never forget when a Mama goose waddled up with her four babies and the Daddy goose held up the caboose (or the "cagoose" lol) . I have the privilege of sitting right at the front of the office with floor to ceiling windows. Over the past year I’ve gotten a great view, every morning and afternoon, as they waddled past.
These very special encounters got me thinking… what can I learn from our feathery neighbors? What could BIOLYTE learn?
The thing that stood out to me is how devoted 🤍 the parents are to the babies.
Males and females attach to each other around the time they are two years old. They mate for life and can have multiple “clutches” of geese eggs every year after they are three years old. Typically, they’ll have about 5-10 goslings per brood 🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣 and the geese parents are known to defend their goslings with everything they have.
Both parents lose or “molt” their flying feathers 🪶when their babies are born so their entire gaggle (family) is land locked for 42-55 days while the babies grow and learn to feed. They hiss and charge at predators much bigger and ferocious than themselves (on occasion, they'll hiss at humans if they get too close!) The parents will walk in a line, one parent in the front and one in the back so that the babies are in the center for ultimate protection.
That’s what you have to do when you love something: you have to protect it with everything you have. You have to stay on the ground with it 🌱, fight for it, foster it, and lead it to food and water so that it can grow big and strong.
Then when you’re ready, you can all take flight together. 🥳
I’m grateful that we’ve chosen a spot that’s at the heart of where these geese are building their lives. I’m grateful for the lessons that they continue to teach us year after year 💙🤍.
LYTE it up,
