Beckoning bridges

"We need bridges," 5 x 7 watercolor holiday card

 
Bridges seem to beckon, especially in a  year  and autumn and the coming winter like this, of pandemic, racism and political chaos like this.

They bespeak of the unknown, of adventure, of possible change, of hope, of passing time. They beckon you to step onto them, to cross them, to just see. 

Today's watercolor, beckoning to sanctuary, to new life from the midst of seasons of dying and death. We need bridges.
