Joelle A Godfrey Your stirring poem reminds me of my love of reading Jonathon Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach.
How many of us feel this as you say, “as I sit motionless in rush hour traffic”
Jonathon wanted the more and was willing to stray from the status quo. He received great humiliation from the crowd by doing this.
Whenever I risk “not sitting motionless in life” I remember what Jonathon withstood to reach his dreams and not accept what the wold had to offer.
