I am entranced by this photo of painters climbing freehand on the wires of the Brooklyn Bridge in October of 1914. The photo was taken by Eugene de Salignac, a municipal worker who was the official photographer for the Department of Bridges of the City of New York from 1906-1934. It wasn't his intention to create art, but to simply document the transformation of the city he lived and worked in. Something about this photo and Eugene's life makes me think of POSSIBILITY. Which leads me to ponder the question from Beat-poet, Jack Gilbert:

"Why do so many...settle for so little? I don't understand why they're not greedy for what's inside them."

It's easy to sit quietly in our lives and forget our aspirations. What we must do instead is be bold and pursue!
