Imagine a forest
on the road of life
travelers being tested
challenging request
of falseness pending

Important consequences
in the days ahead
conceive complex situations
encountering speed bumps

If you are moving ahead too
fast do you grin and bear it
causing serious damage to
your head

Or can trouble be averted
if you see the obstacles far
enough in advance

Take your cues from the
feedback that reality is
offering you and plan
your course accordingly

This puts into words (different words admittedly) what a motorcycle instructor told me once about reading the road and anticipating what might happen. It has worked so far so your advice is very apt. Perhaps that's why the sign still does not apply.

finding our pace in the scheme of things helps to get us to our destination as long as we can see into the distance and adjust our coordinates ...

Wise words indeed, lots of bumpy roads ahead.

i'm wondering if i'll ever find a way out
of the forest;
luv the sign - there's a parallel one which says:
Pampers On, Bumpy Road Ahead

nicely written

Right off I am only laughing about the picture, a friend of mine and I joked about false teeth :)

But we cannot plan, we can only face the situation when it is presented to us. At that moment discernment is our friend. Past behaviors etc., using your own mind and own judgement. Roads are what they are we all travel them it is our learning.

Love and Light

P.S. good food for thought though... only know it is up to us to make those decisions for ourselves

Yes, Vivian, but what of the miscues and disinformation, signs of the times I guess... a clear read often depends upon the lie, but that's par for the course...

Reviewed by Jerry Bolton 7/18/2012
Ah, Vivian, you know people never thing bad things are going to happen to them, so they ignore the warnings until life's harsh realities compels them to wonder why they didn't read and heed.
