Planning and making lists, sketches, and so forth is usually useful, but sometimes it’s invigorating—and even daring—to just dig in. Today I want to drop off an early-morning note to a neighborhood friend who’s in the midst of cancer treatment. Jeannie has seen all of my cards—some more than once. “What can I do?” I wondered. My answer was to dive into my stash of scraps, pull out something, and work with it—quickly. The dogs and I will drop this off when we head out for our morning walk.
