[Extract] Bridges connect places and people. If considered useful or important enough, they will be maintained and may stand for a long period of time. If not, they may be abandoned or even purposefully destroyed. In these instances, they will crumble or decay, be forgotten about or actively avoided. In common usage the word "bridge" most obviously denotes a structure built to enable a path to continue over a river or other obstacle. However, the term is also used to refer—more conceptually—to those times, places and ideas which serve as means of connection or transition between others. Because bridges are designed in accordance with the things they are trying to connect, they can come in a variety of shapes, including some rather peculiar forms.
