Never Can Tell reminds me of walking to and from the Point at Takodah for opening campfire each year at family camp. We shine our flashlights to find our way back through the woods to our cabins afterwards.
My title comes courtesy of my following Jen Walls into the woods, so to speak; she is using the musical Into the Woods and its metaphors as her theme this month—many wonderful lyrics in that musical.
I could also have entitled this piece ICU since it ended up in intensive care repeatedly as it came into being—some really big gaffes occurred en route as well as some heroic (and satisfying) emergency medical procedures.
