"Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known." - A.A. Milne
Bridges provide opportunities. They span areas not otherwise reachable.
Bridges join separate pieces of land and enhance their separateness. They invite individuals from here to there and back again. The arches reveal thresholds and turning points. Often symbolic of danger, mystery and enchantment, they shine with possibilities for story.
Spiders teach ways to connect locations. Many bridges reveal similar lines.
In times of transition, bridges provide a view of what life looks like from another side of a river.
They invite one to linger during the crossing, stop in the middle to feel the sway, and notice where the water meet the sky.

H.W. Longfellow combines a threshold with a point in time in his poem, The Bridge
I stood upon the bridge at midnight,
As the clocks were striking the hour.
