When I was a kid, I wished I could fly. You know, just stand in one place, flap my arms, lift off and soar like a bird. I always pictured an eagle when having this fantasy, but soaring like a seagull would have worked, too.
I also wished for a horse. That wish came true, in the way of various ponies who pranced in and out of my life until adulthood, when I finally graduated to a full-size horse. I’m still waiting for the wind beneath my wings to lift me high above the treetops!
I just got back Friday from a three-day writers’ retreat at the coast. One of my best friends and I went to another friend’s new beach house in Lincoln City. It was relaxing and we all got a lot of writing done. I didn’t complete my novel DAISIES ARE TRUE, but hope to have it finished soon. I do have a published supernatural thriller, MIST. Click here for more on that. It’s also available on Barnes & Noble for Nook and at Smashwords for all other ebook readers.
But back to the seagull in flight – I’ll be sharing photos I took at the coast here and at my photography blog (click here) Cahill Photojournalism.
I like the simplicity of this shot, and the way the light glows through the gull’s tail feathers.
