Proportionito E Homme Leisuro

Dad sent me a postcard from Italy where he and Mom are traveling until we meet up in India. The caption to this masterpeice reads:

My best effort sketching Leonardo's little known drawing of "Proportions of man at rest." Take note of the violet "Elipse of Ease" with it's two foci. This is not shown in his more famous work.

Oh Susan. Flathead rocks my world.

I adore this postcard.

I also adore the "violet 'Elipse of Ease'". (you had so better appreciate my use of single and double quotation marks above...)

I can see from whence your wit is derived.

Cheers.
