Today, October 18 at 12.20 am, is my birthday and I’m in celebratory mood. It’s hard to believe that I’m 57 but somehow this year feels extra special because I was born in 1957.
I’ve been perusing old newspapers, photographs, memories, books, poetry, music ….. and the dominant thought has been about connections and bridges built, crossed, burned, admired, dreamed about, determined to see ……
This painting is one that I love because it includes the first bridge crossing, known locally as ‘Timbertoes,’ in Waterford City
I’m talking about all sorts of bridges ~ and I’d be so thrilled if you would join with me in celebrating BRIDGES from now until the end of October.
To take part, please email your contribution ~ be it writing, photography, artwork, poetry, music ….. to me at email@example.com and give me some insight into the reason for your choice/s.
Here’s one of my favourite songs from 1957 to take you back to that era ~ it just has to be Elvis!!
