the Fear of Flight...
I devour books...my shelves are full. I need to buy more shelves. I will put that on my to do list. I can't seem to give most of them away. I share them but I always like to revisit my favorite books occasionally depending on my current needs. A dear friend told me about Jonathan Livingston Seagull. I cried during the first three pages...I am hooked.
Take a read and let's chat about it!!
"This is the story for people who follow their hearts and make their own rules… people who get special pleasure out of doing something well, even if only for themselves… people who know there’s more to this living than meets the eye: flying higher and faster than they ever dreamed.
from Wikipedia... "Jonathan Livingston Seagull, written by Richard Bach, is a fable in novella form about a seagull learning about life and flight, and a homily about self-perfection. It was first published in 1970 as "Jonathan Livingston Seagull — a story." By the end of 1972, over a million copies were in print, Reader's Digest had published a condensed version, and the book had reached the top of the New York Times Best Seller list, where it remained for 38 weeks. In 1972 and 1973, the book topped the Publishers Weekly list of bestselling novels in the United States. In 2014 the book was reissued as Jonathan Livingston Seagull: The Complete Edition, which added a 17-page fourth part to the story."
