A to Z Challenege....
The notion of bridges continually intrigues me—the idea of persisting on a voyage then passing over a structure transitioning into unrelated territory or an altered destination.
This brings to mind the Rainbow Bridge; often referred to as the bucolic end of our beloved pets when they pass away. These adored creatures are said to have traversed over the passageway into the sacred heaven of God designed exactly for our dogs and cats, birds and bunnies all living peacefully.
Metaphorically speaking, bridges are connectors between the mundane or familiar as compared to the novel innovative thoughts and ideas. Bridges automatically allude to fluctuations; the leaving behind then moving in the direction of the new.
Currently, I catch myself standing idly on the bridge with the ever so present yearning to leave behind the vocation I’ve known for thirty years; teaching. The mind is willing yet hesitancy persists with the tether being financial security. Although ideas abound be it my writing and sale of my book or opening my own scrapbooking store, that final footstep across the viaduct into the unknown awaits.
What bridge is before you?
“Sometimes if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.”
Winnie the Pooh
