2015-03-28A recital of the novel by Richard Bach Jonathan Livingston Seagull was held at the head branch of New Acropolis. The novel is a beautiful story about self-improvement and about the path of development and love. For one evening participants flew with Jonathan Livingston and on the wings of imagination to the clouds of everyday life – in the clear sky, filled with light and sun rays. As Richard Bach wrote – “Heaven is not a place, and it is not a time. Heaven is being perfect.”
