You have written a beautiful modern allegory for stepping forward in faith.

I had a hard time finding this from your hint, but I perservered and am so glad I did.. This is beautiful. I especially love these lines...

"No bridge remained to allow me back to sameness."

"I closed my eyes and stretched my arms out to the sides tentatively trying to find trust. Then I could smell it. A deep freshness like after a rain. My skin prickled with the exhilarating chill that blew across it. I let it wash the fear away."

I love this!! I hope very much it places, too. It deserves to! Big time kudos!!
Wow! You wove a very good story of faith and the bridge over which we must travel in our quest to increase our faith. Well done.
