Setting a New Year's pace -

This morning I opened Billy Collins wonderful book, Aimless Love, to this poem.  What a guide for this new year.

My Hero

Just as the hare is zipping across the finish line,
the tortoise has stopped once again
by the roadside,
this time to stick out his neck
and nibble a bit of sweet grass,
unlike the previous time
when he was distracted
by a bee humming on the heart of a wildflower.
