The first, hopeful step: getting out supplies and setting up a mini studio on the ottoman next to my spot on the couch. Unfortunately, carrying through with my desire was hampered. My hands are bruised and aching from the IVs. That's why my watch is on the World Atlas not on my wrist. Icing helps. --Why the Atlas? It's a great substitute for the tray, which is too far away to make the trip.
