“I demolish my bridges behind me. Then there is no choice but forward. “
Although it’s rare for me to do two posts in one week (can you tell it’s a rainy week here on Kiawah??), I couldn’t resist this week’s Photo Challenge “Forward”, and the complimentary Travel Theme “Bridges” from Ailsa of “Where’s My Backpack”.
Bridges, which are beautifully photogenic, lead us forward to new places and carry us metaphorically between the phases of our lives. They can be massive:
“The farther backward you look, the farther forward you can see.”
They can carry Bobs:
“Have Faith ! Go Forward !”
Can be lit by the sun:
Or by the moon:
In the country:
Or in the city.
Bruce Jackson said “Bridges are frames for looking at the world around us.” Wherever they are and whatever they look like, they take us to places new and old, physical and emotional, backward and forward. It is ours to decide which way we will go.
