June 17--Leonardo da Vinci, Head of a Man in Profile Facing to the Left. Hold still, old man, hold still. How can I draw you if you keep moving? Don't change the shape of your mouth, I can't erase this ink. Now I've made your nose wrong. It's pretty big, what some might call a beak of a nose but I've made it too big because you keep moving it. Old man, you're a trial as a subject. Usually it is children who can't sit still but you are by far the worst. No, don't turn to look at me when you talk. Yes, you can talk. Santa Maria, I can no more silence you than I can still the wind, but just... here let me pose you again. Keep your eyes on the crack in the corner. Yes, I know I should have it fixed and I will, before winter, I promise. Good. Yes, I will contact your nephew. Yes, I'm sure he is an excellent plasterer. No, wait, don't eat that. I was going to draw that apple next. I think we are finished, signore. Here, have a few coins for your time. Yes, I'll be sure to call on you again when I need a subject. Now, go.
Okay then, enjoy your Father's Day, even if you're not a father. Stay cool.
