Can You Read the Forest Through the Trees?

Come closer and see...see into the trees. In the recent past, I proposed A wingless bird ascended is referencing a train. I base this claim upon the Japanese hint and mention of iron horse. You can read about it here. I'll get back to this point shortly. Today, I would like to discuss Of a forest. This line is nearly a direct translation of a street name in Montreal. A street which happens to be in an interesting location with respect to the Montreal puzzle, Pine Avenue. Keep in mind, Montreal streets are in French so while your Google searching may show Pine Avenue on it's maps, on the ground you will see Avenue des Pins.

At first glance, Pine Avenue and Avenue of Pines may not seem a big deal. However, if we align the street to Of a forest, it becomes a very interesting translation. Avenue of Pines - Of a forest, are you at least curious?

Let's jump back to A wingless bird ascended . Pull up your map of Rue Drummond. Notice the street dead ends in two places. In 1982, the southern boundary was Windsor Station, the original home of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The northern border is Avenue des Pins. A couple of important notes to these boundaries. Drummond is to the south and also below Avenue des Pins. You've all likely heard discussions around the stairs at the top of Drummond. If you look up to the top of these stairs, you are looking out onto Avenue des Pins but you cannot see it because it is so far above you. Jump back to our verse. Of a forest is flanked by lines with Beneath and south in them. *Insert thinking emoji.

Now, let's jump back to why we refer to "the top" of Drummond. If you are standing at the top boundary of Drummond looking down to the Bell Center, it would look similar to the below photo.

Now, imagine you were standing at the Bell Center. Formerly, the area where the trains came into Windsor...the southern boundary of Drummond. Look up the street as I've done many times, dreading the climb to the top...the ascension.

We have two lines in V5 which clearly describe the north and south boundaries of Rue Drummond. Coincidence? I think not...

...But I know it's too late...I'm lost in a forest...All alone

I don't know if you're still following that lead, but just in case, it might be worth mentioning this: the street at the bottom/south of rue Drummond, which is now called "avenue des Canadiens-de-Montréal", was called "rue De La Gauchetière" before that, and "rue Osborne" when the Windsor station was built and until 1962. Ancient name Osborne... born of ancient dreams of flight.

I think you are dancing around the answer. People assume these clues are simple/easy. Understandable, as many are pushing this messaging. What if some of the clues are not as simple and easy as most believe? Is Quebec a viable answer to Lane? 100%. Could I have arrived at Quebec by utilizing Lane without the assistance of the Japanese hints. Not a chance. Apply this to “A wingless bird ascended”. The hints are a huge help with verse 5.

That's a really great picture. Even when I was there I didn't really 'take it all in' so to say. It's hard when on site to really think well. I always leave with a zillion regrets. I'm a bit fan of south of a forest being below/south of a street named "trees." I wouldn't like the railroad part as much if not in tandem with this. I like this example of piecing together puzzle pieces that alone might just be maybes and thus adding strength to the entirety.
