    In my search to discover the IS I must start with the WAS and/or, HAS BEEN
    Here I find the trail of TENDENCIES that lead the fork in the road of DISCOVERY
    Where the trail of TENDENCIES divides into the roads of OPPORTUNITY

    Many of the roads of OPPORTUNITY are narrow and steep and lead away from the road of TENDENCIES while the road of TENDENCIES is wide and at a slight decline

    The sunset of TIME pushes me to make a choice before the bridge of OPPORTUNITY gives way under the weight of INDECISION and I slide down the road of TENDENCIES by default
    And it is just beyond this point that I find the IS with ITS pants caught on the fence between the roads of TENDECIES and DISCOVERY

    From here the IS can see the bridge of OPPORTUNITY collapsing on the road of ALMOST into the valley of the COULD HAVE BEEN and floating down stream on the river ALMOST

    but...

    though the bridge of OPPORTUNITY collapsed, it floated down the river of ALMOST to the bend called REAL TIME...where it fell in line with the twin towers of HOPE and DREAM where it created a **** to cross the stream...and allowed OPPORTUNITY to connect with TENDENCIES and loop around to meet with DISCOVERIES that the people in the valley of COULD HAVE BEEN see as LIFE.

    thanks for the journey.
