Through prose and poetry, one man shares what he has learned through a lifetime of forked roads. It is anthem as much as memoir-one that will be familiar to many.

In The Road Is Always Forked, author Joseph LeBlanc explores how we approach difficult choices and the anxiety, regret, and guilt we can suffer. He notes how time affects what we choose and how it has affected him, and he describes how he has been moved to reflection, introspection, empathy, and inspiration by words and song-the same things that reach out to everyone. He unflinchingly examines what we keep inside due to mistrust and urges us to give each other a chance. He calls out the self-surrender that life can exact and encourages a return to familiar ground while there is still time. And he welcomes the random thoughts that come to us all, not in the service of something larger but just for ourselves; they lift the weight we bear, even if only for a short time.

This unique collection of writings offers thought-provoking insight into difficult choices, hindsight, regret, trust, time, mortality, hope, and inspiration.
