these scratchings
these marks
are nancy’s response
to what’s happening around her.
i’m convinced of that,
though she can’t confirm
or deny it.
she can’t explain.
but she can teach
she can set an example.


today i add an activity to my day:
10-15 minutes of nancy-style mark making
in response to what is happening around me.
no words
no explanations
no apologies
no defending
just marks.

today’s marks were made in the context
of a conversation about health issues
and second opinions from surgeons.
but you could probably tell that.

i could become addicted.
