It was late afternoon /early evening and I was out walking. The bridge looked beautiful with the lights showing a way across it with the reflections in the water. I saw in it a visual metaphor of what the last year has been: In the dark night of the current times we need to reach out and connect and bridge the gaps of loneliness & darkness. Both within ourselves and in others. To shine our inner light to encourage a reaching out a cross troubled waters and a lighting up of the bridges to connection. And at the same time appreciate that the darkness also allows the stars to shine & movement in water clears the stagnation. Let us gently shine and reach out.
