Where Do Ducks Go In The Winter ?

Where do Ducks go in the Winter ?, a famous question from a great book…

The Catcher in the Rye is a 1951 novel by J.D. Salinger.  A controversial novel originally published for adults, it has since become popular with adolescent readers for its themes of teenage angst and  alienation.  The novel also deals with complex issues of identity , belonging, loss and connection.

There is so many stages in our lives, so many changes and we all deal with them differently for the most part.


A friend of mine would read, The Catcher In The Rye, each time he made a big decision in his life and he could not answer why he did, he just did.

I began to read it and I was really enjoying it, but I set it aside with only 4 chapters left to read and that was 4 years ago. I guess I best pick up the book again and read it from front to back.

When we make changes in our lives, we ask alot of questions, some to others and most to ourselves, the who, whats, wheres and whens. Hopefully able to answer them or have them answered.

That question, “where do ducks go in the winter?”, was my friends way of saying he was going through changes in his life, once again.

We are creatures of habit, do you have something you do, out of habit when you’re going through changes in your life, that help you deal with change?
