    Great shot, Lorraine. Wonder if younger folks will get the allusion to “Jonathan”, a very old novella entitled, “Jonathan Livingston Seagull”. It is celebrating a 40th anniversary. Haven’t read that book in years. It is a “must read”., a classic fable about a bird striving to be more than ordinary. The tale lends itself to interpretation of human endeavor.
