April 18, 2014 - Fairy Bridges

The key to identifying a fairy bridge is to see where it starts and where it ends.  What does it connect?  What does it span?  If a traveler were to cross the bridge, what might his destination be?  If you cannot answer these questions, you are most likely dealing with a fairy bridge.  Fairy bridges begin nowhere and end nowhere.  They connect nothing, span nothing, and there is no destination for having traveled it.  The photo below is a prime example of a fairy bridge.  One could easily walk around on the left of it, so it does not span water as a necessity.  It begins nowhere and ends nowhere, and on top of it all, it is made of wood and stone without metal.  Fairies, as you know, do not care for metal at all.  Having said all of the above, the weary traveler crosses a fairy bridge at his own risk, and a considerable risk at that.  No one comes off a fairy bridge unchanged.  No one.  You may not be traveling over earthly things on a fairy bridge, but rest assured that if you cross one, you have voyaged nonetheless.
