On the train back from London I had a blast from the past. One of my fellow carriage passengers was reading the book Jonathan Livingstone Seagull – by Richard Bach. It’s a metaphorical story in that it’s about a seagull who takes a different approach to live compared to the rest of the seagulls. What was interesting was the discussion on the book that they were having. Some had read it in a literal fashion (and enjoyed it apparently), whilst others had been exploring the metaphorical concept. One of them decided this was far too simple and no way was a seagull going to give him any insights in to his life – hey it takes all sorts. When I got home I looked on my bookshelf but it’s not there so I’ve loaned it out at some point. Anyway if you like metaphors and don’t have a thing about seagulls, then have a read and see what’s there for you.
