gull gaze

“As I watched the seagulls, I thought, that’s the road to take; find the absolute rhythm and follow it with absolute trust.”
– Nikos Kazantzakis

On the occasion of this photograph, I was watching the seagull, and the seagull was also watching me. Maybe he was hoping that my phone was actually a sandwich. Or maybe he trusted me to venture into his “absolute rhythm” for a moment. In either case, I appreciated that this creature of flight was standing still.

All of us creatures need to do that sometimes.
