Gull-able

You will begin to touch heaven, Jonathan, in the moment that you touch perfect speed.  And that isn't flying a thousand miles an hour or a million, or flying at the speed of light.  Because any number is a limit, and perfection doesn't have limits.  
Perfect speed, my son, is being there.

--Jonathan Livingston Seagull

I haven't read his book but just downloaded the free ebook and will read today..because I sat here and stared at the picture and read the words for at least 15 minutes.

Thank you for a blessing in disguise...

What a great quote! Out of all the superhero attributes one could fantasize about, I've always wanted to be able to fly. I think it would be exquisite.
