Passage #336: 27 January 2016

Naturally, by the time they've paid their dues and gotten their names in there amidst all the others--just one in a boring row of uniform plaques--their courses are pretty well set. But when they were starting out and making their way, things were probably a good deal less certain, just like our route tonight. So think, while you are negotiating the shifting terrain this evening, of where you would want to put your star, and what kind of a path it would be, and who else would be there with you.
