When crossing the Minneapolis skyways, the complete window coverage on either side and the signs with an image of water as their background give off the feeling that one is walking through an aquarium tunnel or a river. For corporate workers walking through these corridors on their way to lunch or their car, I would imagine that this would attach a sense of adventure and grandeur to what could be just a routine convenience.
I forget sometimes, on our perfectly manicured campus, that other sidewalks are not always so well cleared. To be fair to this patch, it wasn’t really that bad and was most likely an outlier among its surroundings because of being on a bridge. However, it still made life interesting. I thought I was going down at one point.
I felt quite poetical as I mused on the similarities between roads and rivers while gazing at this view. They connect people, they separate people, they spur development, and of course they both have bridges.
