How did it get to be December already?
What about a poem to memorize?
What about an exercise?
Given the flurry of plans, it isn't such a good time to memorize anything. It is a good time to sing.
For an exercise, something simple. This comes from One Continuous Mistake, by Gail Sher: Write a haiku every day. Take a little moment. Breathe. Write your haiku.
You can get One Continuous Mistake from Amazon or you can probably order it from Open Books.
