One of my daughters asked me to do it with her, and after years of ignoring the whole concept, I decided to go ahead. And write after I decided that, while I was writing my Morning Pages, the idea sprang forth pretty much fully formed. All that’s missing are the details, which I plan to outline in this:

Speaking of which, I went grocery shopping yesterday. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. It was actually FUN to walk up and down the aisles and make choices. Of course, I came home and got sick right after that: fever, sore throat, cough. But other than that, it was great!
