May the Mistakes I Make Light the Way

We were really struck by this sign we found on Hedviggen. Burning bridges is a pretty intense thing to do, and it made us think hard about that idea, of being able NEVER to go back because of a bridge we’ve burned.

We do believe that in just about any action, there are always possibilities for redemption, although we can’t always know what they’ll be. That’s where the “light” part of the Hedviggen sign comes in.

We’re thinking we might modify that compelling matchbox a bit…MAY THE BRIDGES I BURN LIGHT THE WAY….

    AH, what a good edit… It seems like we have the basic form(ula) for prayers of various sorts.
