The underside of one of the many bridges over the river Seine in Paris.
The phrase “being under the bridge” is a pretty familiar one
– used a lot in connection with, for example
discouragement, hopelessness, inconsolability or abandonment.
Water-free bridges are also widely used by homeless people
– as shelter for the night and bad weather.
This expression as song title was also contributing to
the band Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ success in the early 90s.
*Debbie and “Travel with intent” with the word “Bridge” as the inspiring theme*
“The hardest thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which to burn”
*David Russell – scottish classical guitarist*
By the way so bridges are made for connection, not for being a place to jump out.
