The Stick (aka the cane) is an improvement on The Walker and a rejection, on aesthetic grounds, of a conventional aluminum cane.
Purchased long ago at REI or LL Bean or perhaps some crafty local outlet, the stick once had a tip with a metal point, for hiking through snow and skewering snakes. Portland has no snow, nor any snakes, for that matter. But the stick is good for walking-as-physical-therapy. It also has other functions:
This was sketched on a Toshiba Thrive Tablet with a generic stylus. After sketching these two items, I purchased two different styluses, the Pogo and the Jot. Both seem superior to the generic one that Toshiba sells with its droid tablet. We’ll see if they improve the sketches any.
Obviously, hope springs eternal. — June
*SOD is “Sketching On ‘Droid” — I rather like the sound of the abbreviation.
