Draw your neighborhood, but rather than writing out street names, use only your personal landmarks. Be as specific as possible. For your favorite restaurant, sketch the meal you always order when you have something to celebrate. For your weekend jog along the ravine, draw the bench where you meet your running buddy each weekend, and the coffee shop you always visit afterward. What areas of your map have the most memories and texture? Which corners are waiting to be explored?
