Ohh! Here is some space that could be filled with text.

It could contain some introducing thoughts about the middle is near - what it is about, what the author had in mind while creating it and what it is not about.

After reading this text you should know a bit more about the middle is near, but maybe not.

do you think the middle is near?

this is not the middle ...

nor is this.

you are getting closer ...

but where is the middle ?

the middle should be somewhere
between the beginning and the end.

is the middle in the middle of
the beginning and the end ?

but what is the middle ?

the middle is not what it seems ...

if this is the middle,
would this be halfway to the end ?

maybe there is no middle ...

how can you know
that you've reached the middle ?

maybe there is no need for a middle ...

some would say:
the middle is not near at all.

has the middle anything to do with the centre of something ?

if there is no end,
how can you know when you've reached the middle ?

is it important to know where the middle is ?

where is your middle?

some might say: we passed the middle already.

if the middle lies behind us, where are we now ?

we are in the middle ...

... of nowhere.

the middle is just a mark for neither the beginning nor the ending.

one things's for sure:
the middle is not the beginning.

could the middle be the end ?

if there is no end, there is no middle ...

maybe the middle doesn't make sense.

does the middle have a centre ?

is the middle obsolete ?

or has the middle just left the page ?

do you think the middle has been ...

... and gone ?

the middle is vague.

do you think the middle is a middle-class idea ?

before we reach the middle,
we might be middle aged.

the middle is fair to middling.

the middle is far too middling.

i guess the middle ceases to make sense.

is this text the middle of the road ...

... to the end ?

i guess the middle is futile ...
