Retired Navy Captain and Astronaut Bruce McCandless II stepped into the clearing at the end of the path on Thursday. He was the first man to fly untethered in space and had a remarkable life. A step further out than most of us will ever make, he stepped off with a quip for his wife, "It may have been a small step for Neil, but it’s a heck of a big leap for me."

God bless him. Eventually we will all enter the clearing - but he has something none of us will.
May you and yours have a Merry, Happy and Safe 2018.
