I frequently add small thoughts to my daily note from anywhere on my Mac.

It’s not fancy, but it’s open source, it works.
I combine it with a hotkey from Alfred so I can get it up quickly.
Here’s the code and binary for Mac x64 (have no Silicon to build for those machines).
Everyone loves a screenshot:
It’s really small (~6,5mb) and loads extremely fast.
