Jonathan Livingston Seagull - by Richard Bach

'To the real 
Jonathan Livingston Seagull,
who lives within us all.'

about Richard Bach
Richard David Bach was born June 23, 1936, Oak Park, Illinois. He is an American writer. He is widely known as the author of the hugely popular 1970s best-sellers Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Illusions, The Adventures Of A Reluctant Messiah and others
His books espouse his philosophy that our apparent physical limits and mortality are merely appearance. He claims to be a direct descendant of Johann Sebastian Bach. He is noted for his love of flying and for his books related to air flight and flying in a metaphorical context. He has pursued flying as a hobby since the age of 17.

The story is about Jonathan Livingston Seagull , an ordinary seagull who is more interested to know about flying then just eating fish.

Jonathan Livingston Seagull is a 1973 American film directed by Hall Bartlett, adapted from the novella by Richard Bach. The film, which has no human actors on screen, tells the story of a young seabird who, after being outcast by his stern flock, goes on an odyssey to discover how to break the limits of his own flying speed.

Once you start reading you understand that the story can be , or is, related to human beings. We mostly live for the sake of living and do not seek the purpose of life and do not travels beyond ordinary and remains ordinary.
I am sure many of you have read this but please read if you haven’t, and re-read if you have already.

Fly with Me - Learning to Fly


"Learning To Fly"
(Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne)

Well I started out down a dirty road

Started out all alone
And the sun went down as I crossed the hill
And the town lit up, the world got still

I'm learning to fly, but I ain't got wings

Coming down is the hardest thing

Well the good ol' days may not return

And the rocks might melt and the sea may burn

Well some say life will beat you down

Break your heart, steal your crown
So I've started out for God knows where
I guess I'll know when I get there

I'm learning to fly, around the clouds

But what goes up must come down

Living on an Island - Paradise Beach

Living On An Island
STATUS QUO ( Parfitt / Young )

Easy when you're number one
Everybody say you're having fun
Smiling for the public eye
When your body say you wanna die
Living on an island
Looking at another line
Waiting for my friend to come
And we'll get high

Hugh he got a real nice place
Cruxie gonna be there soon
And I just want to see his face
I'm getting lonely in my empty room
Living on an island
Working at another line
Waiting for my friend to come
And we'll get high

Passing time away in blue skies
Thinking of the smile in her eyes
Easy, it's easy

Living on an island
Oh boy, we're having fun
Living on an island
Thinking 'bout the things I've done
Living on an island
Searching for an other line
Waiting for my friend to come
And we'll get high
Waiting for my friend to come
And we'll get high
I said we're gonna get high
Yeah, we're gonna get high
We're gonna touch the sky
