I am a lawyer who enjoys drawing and other art activities as recreation. During the past year, I have experienced an extraordinary level of stress due to my husband's diagnosis with ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease or motor neurone disease) and my own diagnosis of breast cancer. The Sketchbook Project gave me an opportunity to work out my thoughts and emotions through art and, in some cases, reflections on my favorite poems. In addition, I decided to share my sketches on Facebook and Instagram--to my surprise, I learned that many of my friends and family did not know how much I loved doing art. It has been an extraordinarily therapeutic process and has helped me navigate some very choppy seas.
