Stick: eh, Duck, you're back, where were you?
Duck: in Oklahoma, Stick, in Oklahoma, as usual
Stick: oh yes, that's true, you spend the winter there, like Heron. Did you see him?
Duck: yes, he told me he was coming back soon, he was waiting for us to leave, then he would get ready to go.
Stick: are the roads too congested ?!
Duck: make fun of us, Stick, but if everyone was leaving at the same time, there would be problems with food and space.
Stick: I guess, Duck, I guess. Are you going to stay long?
Duck: one week only, enough time to regain our strength. My friends and I are going to Canada, we are not there yet.
Stick: why are you going so far?
Duck: it's our custom, Stick, each duck goes back where he was born, it avoids overcrowding at a given location. It's like the flight times, everyone has their schedules and routes, it is easier.
Stick: so many travels and complication when it's so easy to live and stay in one place.
Duck: you speak like that because you don't know the joy of travelling, of changing locations, of being a nomad.
Stick: is it not because of the cold that you are going South?
Duck: yes, it is, we are not well equipped for snow and ice, but I'm not sure I would not travel anymore if I could, like some of the geese that are now here almost all year long.
Stick yes I noticed them. With the human beings and the changes they introduce, it becomes easier to remain in one place now.
Duck: if they do not fly, they will become obese and will not be geese anymore. I do not want to be anything but a travelling duck, so I travel.
Stick: but you do not know how the seasons change the ponds and the forest around here, since you never remain long enough to see it.
Duck: yes, it's true, Stick, the changes I seek are elsewhere.
Baton: there are travels in time and travels in space. For me, staying in one place is a sufficient change.
Duck: what you say is interesting, Stick, I had never considered travels that way.
Stick: so you're convinced, you stay?
Duck: no, understanding is not necessarily accepting.
