Her life, a bridge
Creating safe passage
For the reconnecting,
Of what we carry inside

It feels like many are coming to a crossroads.
Call it middle age. Call it pandemic burnout. Call it foresight.
We are seeking a new way for so many things that seem not to be working anymore.
Or maybe the things never actually worked and we’re finally seeing the cracks and gaping holes that others have tried to point out.
Some are already on this road, and are using what they’ve learned to be a bridge for others.
To find a way that’s worked and share it.
To explore what hasn’t been explored yet and pave a road to it.
To gather together other explorers and create new paths.
The world seems bleak at times, but there are many explorers, if we pay attention.
If we listen.
Maybe one of them is you?
