Bridges….

It’s been a long time since I could type down my thoughts. Now that at last, I have laid my fingers across the keypadFor the story behind this post, I want to take you all back to the fourteenth of December, last year.

It was the baccalaureate day, the day where the solemn acknowledge that we would soon leave the nest was taken. The day when close friends said promises and exchanged addresses and reminders to keep in touch and echoing the years of fun and craziness. That is when I ccame across these words in a bookmark, taken from an old prose. Unfortunately, can’t quote the name of the original poet.

 Life is like building bridges…

A part of the landscape…

Arches that the wind so often plays on….

Don’t go on separate ways…

 Start on each side and continue on…

This is how they were built…

Two beautiful spans that meet in middle…

2 hands in concrete greeting…

Go both ways…

Road has 2 directions…

 One day…

Look for something as simple as an open door…

A handshake…

N that is how we will know…

How we cross these bridges that we share with others…

Which then becomes twice as large…

These are the lines that I want to emphasize on. Around five hours post-Valentine’s day ( nothing unusual about the wrong timing, but as they say better late than never), I need to share these lines. Life is like that, I guess. Bridges built in different places, across various waters, some deep, some calm and some troubled. But at the end of the road, it connects us all. Even today, miles apart from most of my friends, it’s the memories that make each day spaciel and also, the promise that someday we’ll meet each other on the bridge.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all out there.
