Stopping on a bridge, in the distance down river from where I rest, I see a similar bridge. I wonder, “Could that be the bridge I was meant to cross?”
Then something inside my heart tells me “No.”
Right now, in this moment, I am meant to be here. I’m sure of that. I’ll cross that bridge, that one in the distance, I’ll cross it when I come to it.
Bridge the gap between yourself and Ailsa @ Where’s My Backpack to view more entries for this week’s challenge. Thanks to Ailsa for hosting, and thanks to you for visiting, commenting, liking, or browsing.
(I’m standing on the bridge that connects Lambertville, NJ and New Hope, PA – two really neat cities that invite you to shop, dine, or just stroll and grab a cup o’ Joe.)
from one bridge to another..like it !
One bridge at a time 😉
Good seeing you, J&M.
A cup o’ Joe? Don’t know much about that, but I know I like your writing and bridge philosophy. 🙂
I’m so pleased. Thank you. And if coffee is not your cup of tea, then maybe strolling and sight seeing is. Either way, a great bridge to cross.
My husband has just explained to me that a cup o’ Joe is a cup of coffee. Sorry, I didn’t know that one. Here, we say ‘cuppa’ (it covers everything hot you can put in a cup). I learn all sorts of stuff by blogging.
Don’t feel bad. Learning’s a good thing. I, for one, am always learning. Maybe I’ll have something more valuable to learn ya next time 😉
Good answer to the challenge, Gemma. Hubby would enjoy a cup of Joe, but I’ll settle for a chai latte. 🙂
That they have too, ad. 😉
This is all very poetic. The story AND the picture. I don’t know how a picture can be poetic, but it is. I never really ask myself that question, because I just do what the GPS guy tells me to do. It’s way less poetic…..
You know me and GPS! Ugh. We’ve had this conversation before. But, poetic? I like that. Thanks.
I agree with tha last comment – the post has a nice poetic ‘deep and meaningful’ flavour! I like the frame too, it suits the photo well.
Thank you, Madoqua. I don’t frame too often but I kind of liked the extra color. I appreciate your return visit. 🙂
Yes don’t go rushing to cross bridges is the best advice sometimes !
I had to google cup o’ Joe Gemma …. always learning new stuff me !
I have a mug that read Cup O’ Joe. I thought once something made it to the coffee mug circuit, it was universal. Apparently I am the one learning today. 🙂
Plus it’s my son’s name – not cup o’ joe, but Joe. 😉
Thanks for stopping by, poppy.
Love that area. So beautiful, and such fun for a stroll.
Another stop you can make when you hit the flower show – maybe?
I’m going to separate the aquarium and the flower show. Give them each a day of their own. And New Hope always deserves a day. As does Peddler’s Village … and Rice’s Market. Hub is on a sabbatical this semester and so we are tackling the day trips in a frenzy. 🙂
Heard of Rice’s Market. Never been there. I’ll need to put that on the to-do list. Enjoy it all. Let me know how much fun you had. 🙂
“I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.” Perfect!
Makes one want to be there —
Sometimes, it is not yet meant for us to journey at certain places even if we want to. When the right time comes, it will happen. Beautiful post.
