Photo a Week: Bridges

The gap between the life I’d envisioned
and this current reality is widening…
I need a bridge – not a short, low one,
but a large, expansive bridge to carry


all my wishes, to facilitate movement
of passing ideals, allow for traffic flow.


Or a bridge to slow me down, dialled in
to the sun’s rays, directing me toward
a new reality that encompasses change.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Life has many bridges that we need to cross over. I think the hardest bridge is when one’s body hijacks the mind and the bridge to youthful pursuits are no longer possible. Lovely images, V.J. The Sundial Bridge is amazing. 🙂
