It had been an unrelenting journey. We’d cowered from the savage rage of milky-headed mountains; endured the critical eye of rustling ash and quizzical oak.
The Bridge was all. Every tumbling waterfall, scurrying its rivulet offspring; streaming us ever closer to the answer; ancient, true and eternal.
Choice lie only with the privileged. Our choice; uncompromising, was to seize the brambled path of truth.
We stared into the glare of petrified deer and frantic fox; salmon leaping over and under our wildest expectations, toads on stools standing in defiant unison.
The Bridge awaited, in all its regal quietness. We saw it; stood there. Alive.
We would survive.
