“The entire world is a very narrow bridge, but most important is to never fear….”
Kol haolam kulo gesher tzar m’od v’ha’ikar lo lifached klal.

This diaper-clad youngster is enjoying a wondrous adventure in this playfully irresistible creation! Precocious mice scamper over, under and around floating butterflies, while flitting birds chirp away and a warm fuzzy bunny joins the fun. Enjoy the delightful friendship reflected in this animated and fun-filled “very narrow bridge.” Created by two amazingly friendly characters, this lovable bridge joins together trunk and neck to create a charming narrow “menagerie bridge,” while the written verse skips and swirls repeatedly throughout this carefree micro calligraphy composition.

Ellen Miller Braun is always very specific in her descriptions of the verses she uses in her artwork. This time, however, Ellen leaves you to use your imagination. Share in the wonder of this piece by creating your own interpretation!

Always keep in mind, for every child, and the child in each of us, a bridge of family and friends can help us through both the best of times, as well as the most challenging moments…and certainly, HaShem is always there for each of us.
