Life's Lessons from a Bar Harbor Seagull

After observing GrampE Bob's recent photos of a friendly Seagull on the Ocean Drive Road in Acadia National Park, I was reminded of a few quotes from Richard Bach's book about Jonathan Livingston Seagull.

“Who is more responsible than a gull who finds and follows meaning, a higher purpose for life? For a thousand years we have scrabbled after fish heads, but now we have a reason to live – to learn, to discover, to be free!"

"How much more there is now to living! Instead of our drab slogging forth and back to the fishing boats, there’s reason to life! We can lift ourselves out of ignorance, we can find ourselves as creatures of excellence and intelligence and skill. We can be free! We can learn to fly!"
Hope you are enjoying this beautiful August day!...It's a great day for flying! Realtor GramEpat
