Rough drafts

I'm cleaning house and pitching papers, but before I toss the rough drafts of the Fibonaacis, I've scanned them for you.  I know some people are curious about rough drafts and how the writing process proceeds; and I must say I don't think any came out as full and clear as they appear in these scribbles.  I didn't mark the pauses or the wandering into the kitchen to make toast.

It's peculiar that I habitually write them on envelopes, because I need them to stick mail art into. The trouble isI can never find a scratch pad or a legal pad, but if I open the door of the desk directly behind me, I can find envelopes.  And so we go, blithely onward.
