“I’m a beamwalker,” Hoot said.  “My whole life I’ve been walking the beam, straight and narrow and above it all.  I never had to make any real choices about direction because the only direction I knew was straight ahead, the only direction that mattered.  Anything else, you fell off the beam.  You know how it is. 

“Now, I see that the choices were always there.  I just didn’t notice them overmuch at the time.  I ignored them, the choices I had to make.  Concentrating on straight ahead, I made them without seeing them.  Career choices.  Family choices.  Life choices.  Never even bothered to look too close.”
Ezra Hooten, from Skyshooter
