Reply – Reena’s Exploration Challenge – Week 67 on 1-8-2019

Welcome to the drift, as we sail into a new capsule of time!

This will be the last Challenge in 2018. The next one will appear in the first week of January, 2019.





There is no restriction on the format or the length of the piece. It just has to be your reflection on the prompt from the core.

Write a post on your blog, and link it up with here with a pingback, or copy-pasting the blog link in Comments.

I eagerly await your responses.

Pretty sure I am behind, but I’ll catch up!

There are bridges and then there are bridges. Most bridges are concrete and steel, stretching across those places where Mother Nature had declared ‘There shall be barriers.’

The truth of the matter is these man-made constructions are useful in our lives. We’d be fording rivers with rafts and rope still if not for the creation of the bridge.  Bridges help us get from here to there, make our lives easier. They link to past to the present, the now to the future, home to anywhere else we might travel.

The thing about bridges, however, is not all them are visible. Some span great chasms of grief and love and heartbreak, other tunnel deep inside the human heart, allowing all those things trapped inside to rise to the light of day if only we allow the rising.

Bridges connect us to other people, places we have gone before, thing which we have lost or gained. Bridges connect the moments of our lives across the span of years,  taking us into a new year and leaving the old behind.

Bridges are the connections of our hearts.

What bridges are you building inside your heart?

  1. I like the line ‘Nature declared – there shall be barriers’. Barriers to movement and surface transport, yes. But getting poetic about water, as you are about bridges – Nature says, “Let me create fluidity, where there is rigidity.”

    Do you see the internet as a river or bridge? 😊
