Protected: In Context: Not the Time To Explain a Vignette

There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.

A five-minute pencil sketch  of Dick as he sat on the couch in the TV room. I just grabbed my mechanical pencil with a very thick, soft lead, and a piece of scratch paper that was handy. (I can't even tell you which kind of paper because the sketch disappeared after scanning—I think I might have made a to-do list on the back…

Above: A quick sketch of Dick sitting on the TV room couch next to a bright light. I worked in a new Moleskine with the whiter, more absorbent paper.
