And then, as people continued to tell us flying was impossible, our attempts dwindled.

First, thank you for sharing the quotes from Jonathan Livingston Seagull. I loved the clip.

Second, I apologize for sounding like such a negative Nelly. Your poem was so beautiful and upon re-reading, I feel my response was poor.

Let me explain….

I was thinking from my position a realist parent. I am doing my very best to support flight, but feel at times I am the saboteur.

No honey, you’re really not built to fly. How will you support yourself as a bird? Society is not paying birds these days. :)

Ughhh! I’m sorry. The explanation is not making it any better.

I’ll quit now. (Shrugs)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
