Past-President, Li Gibbs, wrote a beautiful inspirational poem for our first in-person meeting of the Rotary year:
Measures of a Life*
Time inches away
  from here and now
The seconds tick
As the clock strikes yet
another minute
Life measured in tempos
  a rhythm of the heart
This second counts
   as much as the next
  just as much as the last
Each breath
  Each beat
       we exist
Not in a bubble
    Not a microcosm
But in a big rich space
 Where our existence matter
Where we can make a difference
Where love will grow and prosper
Where the next strike signals
a challenge to be conquered
   A second
        A minute
            tick, tick, tick
          measures of a life....
  ...What will you do with yours?
