“You’re packing? Where are you going?”

“Hollywood.” Stuart avoided looking at his father in the eye.

“Hollywood? What the heck is in Hollywood? So all of a sudden the fish in New York aren’t good enough for you?”

“It’s not that, Dad. I’m going to audition for a movie. A starring role. I’ll be famous.”

“What kind of movie has a seagull as a starring role? Are you sure this isn’t just some kind of trick someone is playing on you?”

“This isn’t a trick. The movie is based on the book Jonathan Livingston Seagull. A new wave of interest in the story grew after the publishers reissued the book in 2014. I’m going to audition for the role of Jonathan. Look, I got my portfolio ready.”

“Stuart, have you even read that book? Do you know the hardships Jonathan endured?”

“I can do this.” Stuart hopped up on the railing. “Dad, I gotta go. The wind is due to change any minute now and I have to catch the upper draft going west. Bye. I’ll call you when I get there.”

Stuart’s father stared in disbelief as his son took off, suitcase dangling from his feet. “Stuart! Stuart! You can’t be Jonathan Livingston Seagull. You’re afraid of heights!”
