All these holidays are messing my head up. Do I have to make another large-format story? (Yes, John, you do.)

It's about CÚzanne.

A model models for an artist. She comes back the next day for another session. She's a year older, but that's imperceptible.

Two days after that it's her third sitting. She's two years older. (It's the Fibonacci sequence!)

And so it goes, for more than a month. The painting goes on. It gets better and better! The model is, finally, seventy-five years old. The painting is good, good.

It's almost done; but the model doesn't show up.
