The Art of Making Mountains




Copyright 2015 by S. W. Paul Wyszkowski

     "That so doesn't look like a mountain," Prickles observes. Happens you're absolutely right. "I thought we were going to talk about mountains, judging from the title," she complains. In an allegorical way. "Oh," she says, "so what about allegorical mountains?" If you're going to manufacture them out of molehills make sure they are beautiful and exciting, not dark and daunting. "But that would defeat the whole purpose of making them," Prickles objects. Precisely. "You think one can be that creative while discouraged in face of insurmountable molehills?" She sounds dubious. One must try. "That's it?" she asks. Pretty much.
