Picture taken at the Rainbow Bridge, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada (October, 2015)
Challenge Accepted! As I just finished up the two week Blogging Fundamentals, I decided to explore some of the daily prompts. I posted this picture on one of my first blog posts, but figured it was worthy of a repeat for this prompt. Not the best quality picture, I will admit, but I love the fog and the rainbow effect coming off of the water. You see why it is called the Rainbow Bridge! This picture was taken from the Canadian side of Niagara Falls where I was visiting with my father last year, looking over at New York. It was quite remarkable to just stand and watch the falls in all their majesty. I was in awe! Looking at this brings back the memories of it. I highly recommend it if you ever get the opportunity.
Bridge the Gap
Bridges are beautiful structures and can be what separate us or join us together. As I am always more of a “half glass FULL” kind of optimist, I prefer to think of them as the great connectors of society rather than dividers. We need more connections in our lives, don’t you think? We as a society have become disconnected from social interactions as technology has advanced. I myself am guilty as charged at times.
Our country should be coming together and I see it being torn apart during these highly emotional, political, and volatile times. We all need more bridges, rainbows, sunshine, and happiness in our lives. I know it’s a rather simplistic view, but I think if everyone just smiled more our world would be a happier place. Really, you should try it.
Let’s all get out today and bridge some gaps in our lives and build new relationships and connections with people, or just strengthen existing ones. As for me, I am meeting some girlfriends for a little afternoon painting and Pinot party. 🙂 Let me know what bridges you are out building or crossing today!
