Today’s walk to Carol’s Bridge

Click to enlarge

To East Yorkers, it’s the Woodbine Bridge but to Danica and me it’s Carol’s Bridge. She was a close acquaintance who leapt to her death from this bridge a few years ago. Carol had “gone off her meds”, fearing the lithium pills she had been prescribed to help her troubled mind.

At the funeral service, I heard a very strange speech by the officiating cleric. Apparently the opportunity to alliterate was too good to pass up and she asserted that Carol had “jumped into the arms of Jesus”. I remember thinking, “He wasn’t a very good catcher”.
