Every time I cross the causeway bridge, I watch seagulls catch and ride updrafts which gives the appearance of floating only on stillness. Do they take their own holiday away from routine flight by drifting this way? It never fails to enchant and remind me of my dad who also delighted in all kinds of birds and flight and wanted to return as a seagull only to spread his wings and glide.
is floating simply a gift of breath?
