Tribute to Jonathan Livingston

By QuinnyA
Raise your hand if you are old enough to remember the book Jonathan Livingston Seagull. written by Richard Bach. This was a 70ís book that those of us who remember, embraced as we were ďfinding ourselves.Ē Oh what a time this was and Iím not being nostalgic, it really was. It was a time of change, changes that made a big impact on the world.

We fell in love with Jonathan a seagull who lived passionately, refused to conform and shunned meaningless materialism. This bird was my hero. I hung off every word (this is how we talked in the 70ís) about this seagull who flew for the love of it and was propelled by his desire to learn. Itís good to remember the love of learning. Iíve moved on from the 70ís but Iíve never lost my love of being with people who feel passionately about what they do. What a gift! What a treat to know so many of you! You can still find copies of this book. Jonathan Livingston Seagullís spirit lives today.

The shot reminded me of reaching for the sky - Andy

Yep, it was a literature class assignment for me. Nice memories and a beautiful photo.

A Seagull pinched my tub of winkles on Folkstone Harbour when I was a kid. The sod flew down and grabbed the tub out of my hand, I think the vinegar and pepper must have put it off though; it dropped the tub on the pavement quite quickly.
