The stepping stones are clearly visible. They lie in front of us. The stepping stones are the visible signs of our conscious plan, a plan that exists because we choose to live by a plan. Finally, we chose to live by a plan and have a plan to live by. Finally, we decided to chart a course to navigate, to set our sail by the stars.
Why didn't we do this before? Did we simply wish to bob around in the current? Or were we part of a larger convey whose direction we accepted, never questioning that our ship might have a journey of its own?
Now we have the journey. We have the plan. We have stars to navigate by, we can set a course.
Tonight the sky is beautiful. The air is crisp and full of promise. Let's go, let's set sail on our voyage.
