We took our first trip to Australia as a break from some really stressful events, and drove the great ocean road to Warrnambool. The B&B there had the most amazing orange cake in the mornings, but in the evening, we just took a walk along the coast to watch the sunset.
That’s when I saw this one lone gull, looking out at the ocean and facing the breeze. I imagine that he was pausing to gather his strength before flying into the wind across uncharted waters, ready to ride wherever the currents led. It’s not a particularly creative or artistically significant image, yet it’s one that really hit home given our own left turn in life.
So to all the gulls out there about to launch into new horizons, may the wind be at your back and the seas calm under your course.
