I had just divorced my third wife Cherie She was a plain woman with almost no outstanding characteristics about her at all I married her because she was quite different from my first two wives and because I didnt want to grow old alone Also I couldnt cook Cherie could cook however all of her dishes were very plain This should not have surprised meI stood along the riverbank behind my house and reflected on my marriages It was early November 1985 The Canada geese always flew overhead this time of year and this evening was no different They flew low to the ground at 536 pm - coming in to a landing in their misshapen V I watched them settle in for the evening There was irony in the fact that each of my wives had been fascinated by the geese and I was by no means oblivious to this I knew they would be gone by tomorrow afternoon My river was one of their favorite motels a guaranteed stop on the long trip south I turned my back to the riverbank much like I had turned my back on Cherie and walked back up the hill to my houseThe following afternoon as I looked out the kitchen window I was surprised to see one of the geese remained It was flying in a circle alone above the river I was curious but the day was a dreary one and I opted against exploring Instead I sat at the table and watched the bird through the window Something about its solitude struck me and made me sad I poured myself a whiskey and tried not to think about CherieA few hours later I sat in front of the television Growing Pains was on channel five and I tried to pay attention That family made me sick No one on the television ever got divorced back then I clicked off the set and went upstairs
