I think it’s important to take time to admire the contributions of others. It’s so easy to become self important and absorbed in our own endeavors that we can ignore or even dismiss what others have done.
I am currently trying to memorize the poem by Robert Service “The Cremation of Sam McGee”. It is a poem that has captivated me since early teens but I have never taken the time to learn it by heart.
I struggle to memorize things. I get concepts but the order of the words is not something I can keep straight in my head. Never let me quote you! But this poem is of such a sweet spot in my heart, I think it merits the time to work on it and get it right.
It may take some time, but I’ll get it. It’s worth it.
