I've written a little story. Sent it out. Hoping to hear from the recipient whether or not it is a worthy endeavor.
While awaiting, here's something to mull over:
"The person who is waiting for something to turn up might start with their shirt sleeves."
OK, back to work.

So the whole joke for me is that happy little porcupines with balloons will soon be sad little porcupines.
But I'm not sure how convincing this drawing is. Do you immediately know it is a porcupine? There should be no doubt or hesitation.
I've been looking at it too long. Any opinions out there in blogland?

From a work in progress.
It reminds me (in a barely related way,) of what Joseph Conrad had to say on the subject: "Reflection is a destructive process; a reckoning of the cost. Great achievements are accomplished in a blessed, warm mental fog."
As my wonderful editor Maria put it to me more directly: "Don't overthink it Paul."
