Hats and bridges

Hats and bridges. That seems like an odd combination at first glance, and yet if you think about it, bridges can be a way to visit other places and thus observe many people and many ways and thus, many hats.

“Fear builds walls instead of bridges. I want a life of bridges, not walls.” – Lisa Wingate, The Prayer Box

Both are capable of many meanings. A bridge is much more than simply a way to cross a river, it is an avenue to new ideas and new cultures. It is a common denominator in many social equations, bringing together solutions with problems, cures with disease, and food to the hungry. We bridge economical gaps with financial bridges that bring needed funding to projects too important to fail.

“We are told never to cross a bridge until we come to it, but this world is owned by men who have “crossed bridges” in their imagination far ahead of the crowd. ~ Anonymous

A hat is also much more than a mere covering for the brain depository. A hat can cover a variety of social duties, often displaying warmth and good will through a simple touch to the brim or a slight tip.

“Cock your hat – angles are attitudes.” – Frank Sinatra

A hat shades out the harmful rays of the sun.  It adds a hint of mystery while remaining beckoning and inclusive as well as the prying gaze of the malcontent. It hides unruly hair in need of a trim, or screens the lack thereof as father time advances his follicle creep.
