Thoughts of BRIDGES began with the closing of the 10th Street Bridge for the filming of “One Shot” based on the 2005 Lee Child thriller staring Tom Cruise.

In yoga, the Bridge Pose, Setu Bandhasana, is a back-bend that strengthens the legs and hips, massages the spine, and opens the heart to relieve stress. Setu means bridge, bandha means lock and asana means posture.

In another eastern system, Chakras, bridge parts of the body with an energetic world to help us integrate our psyches with modern social realities.

In Kabbalah, there are 32 pathways based on the 22 Hebrew letters and the ten divine attributes that when brought together give us all of the tools we need to be an active part of creation.

In the nineties, I subscribed to the Journal, BRIDGES, which began to illustrate an active Jewish feminist voice among a coalition of progressive political movements.

Living amongst three rivers makes the bridges of Pittsburgh vital to any kind of city movement. When I first contemplated moving to the south side in 2001, my main consideration was the necessity of crossing a bridge to relocate. When I did make the move, I affectionately assumed the Hot Metal Bridge as my personal possession having the undiscovered bridge all to myself. Today, I share my bridge with everything from bikers to bras and after all isn’t that the purpose of a bridge to be a point of access for all?
