Downtown Bridges

If you think back to the olden days, towns were always built around rivers, creeks or bodies of water. As they grew, they needed bridges and so most cities and towns have at least one bridge. Most of us forget they’re even there, unless they fail or get clogged with traffic. Then we cuss. I wonder if there is a national bridge day, a day when we all take a minute to appreciate the bridges all around us. I could see that. Okay, maybe I’m going a little off the rails, but you try writing about bridges for a paragraph and see where it leads you.

We went exploring an abandoned mill yesterday, it’s weird tho because a lot of stuff happens in there. There’s always groups of teenagers going in and out, people do drugs in there, homeless people sleep in there, people go there for photography, a 17 year old died there this year. All that happens on top of everything that happened before it was abandoned.
