The rhyming cliche goes “Birds of a feather flock together” — meaning that people who have things in common tend to hang around each other — but I think given the diverse interests of individuals that we all belong to multiple flocks.
You might be a fan of the television series The Walking Dead and discuss the latest episodes (and when they might be airing the season finale???) with a small group of friends at work.
You might enjoy tasting and sharing your opinions on local craft beers with the folks who gather at local breweries to compare and contrast other favorites you’ve sampled.
You may be an adrenaline junkie who loves riding the tallest, fastest, and scariest Roller Coasters across the country, sharing videos of the coasters you’ve ridden on YouTube or Facebook.
Certainly there may be some other individuals just like you who enjoy the things in each of those disparate categories, but chances are that most of your friends might like one or two of those same things — but probably not all three.
And that’s okay.
Your flock of fellow friends doesn’t have to encompass all three of those favorite things — you can belong to three separate flocks, each with a singular specific interest.
Birds of a feather can indeed flock together, but not are not required to only belong to a single flock.
Find some interesting flocks and hang out for a bit. See if some of your feathers are of their feathers and decide whether you want to flock together for a little while.
You could be have a flocking-awesome time together!
