Crossing Point

Whether it’s a rickety covered bridge in the foothills of Vermont or a few boards crossing a creek in the woods, it’s not uncommon to stop and take pause at its center point. A bridge can provide a charm and an elevated perspective. Often there is movement with water, a distant view or a change in topography. The bridge itself may be dramatic or something very non-descript but whether it is functional or purely aesthetical, there is something that draws one to its crossing point.

Today's assignment: on your drive to work or a stroll in a nearby park, count the number of bridges you cross and determine the function and aesthetics of each structure. As Bruce Jackson reminds us, “Bridges become frames for looking at the world around us.”
