I remembered reading on the "Becoming Minimalist" site, that if you really don't need or love a particular item you may own - get rid of it! This suggestion was to help you live a simpler life. So, I decided I have several things that I no longer need or really have any attachment to. These items have become the start to the bridge project. I'll keep cleaning out house and invite others to donate their unwanted, unloved items to this mission.
This is just a small step toward this project, but it has to begin somewhere. The next step came from a local Civil Engineer who volunteered to review the building plans of the bridge, feeling very thankful for his offer!
