Here is an image of a railway bridge with silhouettes of people going about their lives, crossing from one platform to another… far, so literal.

But this week, WordPress has asked us for our take on, the image above has the literal take. But I also thought of WordPress being a metaphorical bridge for me and many, many others. This blog has been a bridge connecting me to others in many different countries, different cultures and with diverse ideas and interests. It has opened my horizons at times when I have been unable to socialise or travel as much as I would have liked. Marvellous!

Linked to WordPress Weekly Challenge here.



  1. I like your extended version of the meaning of ‘bridge’, Sue. I feel the same way.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Hear, hear, to you bridges on both counts, Sue – literal and metaphorical. I like the abstract quality too – of the silhouettes moving across the bridge.

  3. I like your thoughts on connecting with the blogging community. I agree. It’s an enriching experience, and I’ve even managed now to meet a few ‘blogging friends’ in real life.

  4. Beautiful interpretation Sue. I agree about WP being the metaphorical bridge that connects us beyond cultures and boundaries. Marvellous indeed!

  5. A warm hug to you from Norway 🇳🇴 – bridging the gap across the North Sea. x

  6. Well Sue – you get the prize this week for the most creative thinking. Love the way you tied this challenge to blogging. Well done!!

  7. I love silhouettes…and I agree with your abstract thoughts as well. You and I would never have met otherwise, would we?

  8. Both are nice takes on the challenge, and I quite agree with you. I also love the silhouetted figures crossing the bridge.

  9. Lund C ….. were many people cross the bridges there every day … both for work and leisure. Really like your take on this weeks topic. As Newton said .. we build too many walls and not enough bridges. Great image.

  10. I feel the same about the friends and cultural exchanges we find in blogging!
