I’ve always been an inveterate (That’s a redundancy, isn’t it? And can “inveterate” be used in a non-pejorative sense?) doodler.
I doodle in meetings, I doodle on my church notes. I doodled when I was in school. So when I got hold of an outline map of the U.S. back in high school, it was doodler’s delight. This work of art(?) took me several days, and I’ve always been rather proud of it. Obviously — since I’ve held on to it for about 35 years now.
