How A Bird Changed My Life
February 28 to March 6
I believe in freedom. I believe that the most glorious miracle of all is the triumph of the human spirit.

One of my favorite books is the literary phenomenon that transformed the lives of millions: Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach.
The book is a story in itself. One night during the swinging 60s, Richard Bach was walking alone in a California beach. He was a pilot – a special breed of aviator in the same league as Charles Lindbergh and Antoine St. Exupery.

But it suddenly stopped.
