Are You Stuck On A Bridge?
Certain metaphors capture the imagination. Among the most powerful in Judaism comes from an 18th century Rabbi named Nachman.
“The whole world,” he said, “is a narrow bridge. And the most important part is not to be afraid!”

This question challenges me now because I just returned from the town where Rabbi Nachman spent the final months of his life. It was in a massive park in this town that he encountered the bridge that led to this saying. I took the picture of it above. Here are a few of the many possible interpretations.
