The Bridge

A bridge begins with a thought, a need.

A bridge is engineered, not haphazardly tossed together. Drawing on and adding to the knowledge and practices of those who have come before, current practitioners inspire those still to come.

A bridge provides safe transit to the other side.  A way to navigate over water or difficult terrain.

A bridge from artistic practice to practice, can provide a way to navigate through the resistance, past feelings of fear, inadequacy or not good enough. 

A bridge requires maintenance, as does the bridge builder.

A bridge is beautiful.

On this day, I am grateful to be a bridge for my ancestors.

  1. You are a beautiful bridge from past to present to this moment, as in every moment, one of transition.
