Bridges Burned and Bridges Crossed


The photograph came first, and then the sketch rendition.

And then the words. I was looking around for quotes and didn’t find one, but this idea seemed satisfying.


  1. A line from a [Swedish] song came up in my mind; «I know what it feels like … when bridges to security are burned».

    I’ve burnt a few, but it never comes out well when you translate like that …


    • Ah yes, that sounds like leaving ‘safe harbours’ behind. In this modern world, the definition of security is problematic. In days of old it might be a close-knit community, or family, or religion.

      What is it today, eh?
