I met this goose at Stanley Park in Vancouver BC. I named her Aglaia (Αγλαΐα).
Αγλαΐα was one of the three Charites. The goddess of beauty, splendor, glory, magnificence, and adornment.
There was something special about her, her curiosity and essence. She made an impression on me. Not afraid at all she came right up. I watched her for about twenty minutes among the others and she made me feel extremely calm.
So many times people walk by one miracle after the other. Unaware of the beauty that surrounds us. Too busy to stop and look, missing out on sharing such beautiful moments, with other people, an animal, an insect or plant. If we just stopped to notice we would discover there is beauty around every corner.
Aglaia has a strong presence. I will let the photos speak for themselves.
