Feeling that there were books and things around this room. It appeared to be some sort of official office...ah...high office of a high ranking personnel; large office. rather plush. As I was viewing the scene, I had the feeling I was in a overstuffed chair. I'm not sure if someone was at this desk sitting. The lighting coming in from behind was so bright it blotted out any detail. Sometimes I had the feeling that there was just a high back chair and other times I had the feeling that somebody was sitting there. (sigh) /~6,5 OK.

X66.5 OK X614 Ah...I'll just put down other individual. This individual was trying to come across very congenial...ah...but the subject didn't seem to be paying much attention to it, as if he was rather weary of the impression.
