If you travel at all or live by water, you know the dependence upon bridges. For the uninitiated, high and long bridges can be intimidating and even frightening. In my usual way, I am speaking both metaphorically and literally. When we speak of bridges and we speak of waiting until we get to them to cross.
Maybe, some bridges take preparation before crossing. Some bridges may need to be avoided. Taking the long way can be inconvenient, but avoiding a safety concern or detour may be the best decision.
Keeping our options open and exploring for new and different bridges just might offer access to something brand new to us. At the very least, knowing some of our options prior to making a split-second decision could be helpful.
