No matter how strong or clever,
Some one will sneer if you pause to hear,

Though close be your aim to the bull's-eye fame,
There are those who will never admit it.

my friends in the holiday season is to pause
with a long enough quality to actually SEE them.

and am contributing right now to another quality memory.
I value you and honor and take the time,
right this moment to pause long enough to truly notice you."

My actions are my own and I am, singularly,
responsible for what I see, say, feel and exert.
