Bridges are such a nice element in a landscape. They come in many different sizes and shapes, from the well-known architectural marvels to just a few wooden planks and a rail hidden away in a forest. But what makes them even more interesting is the meaning they carry.

Bridges not only connect actual physical places. As a symbol they represent connections between ideas or concepts. They are a metaphorical means to overcome obstacles and challenges. Emotional bridges connect people on a deeper, personal level. We build cultural bridges to improve communication and subsequently understanding between countries and societies. We create bridges with words, use them in education to improve understanding and transfer knowlege, and to connect different fields of study. Spiritual bridges are a way to practice a believe or help overcome trauma and mental issues. And last, but not least, our understanding of time is a bridge to link past, present and future.
